We will also be reducing the number of post drop offs and collections to twice a week to reduce the risk to both ourselves and our couriers.

Please note we are a small family business not Amazon, and that whilst we aim to pick, quality check and pack all orders within two working days, due to limited man power and time, orders may be delayed a little at busy times and weekends. Orders placed on Friday will not be packed until the following Monday to be sent out either on Monday or to be collected by our couriers on Tuesday. Please bear with us, we try to do our best!
