Update: 31st May 2020

We are constantly monitoring the COVID-19 emergency situation and have noticed some of the parcels we have dispatched to be delayed by one to three days this is because of the large volume of post passing through our main courier Royal Mail, the volume of parcels being processed by Royal Mail are unprecedented and it has already far exceed Christmas posting levels. We are upgrading all parcels free of charge to faster delivery services where possible for all of our customers, if your parcel has not arrived with in the estimated arrival date that you selected on the checkout please can we ask that you wait an additional 48 hours before contacting us, we have found that the majority of parcels are arriving with in the original estimate or within 48 hours of the last estimated arrival date. We currently have reduced staffing levels but are monitoring and replying to any enquiry as quickly as possible, please can we ask that you use our email contact form for any questions about your order and delivery as our phone lines are often very busy due to high number of calls.
