Christmas Last Posting Dates

Opening Times and Order Shipping Over Christmas

Royal Mail are suggesting Thursday 21st December as the final posting day for domestic mail for Christmas delivery (although not guaranteed).

I will post non-courier orders received up til noon on Thursday 21st the same day. All orders received after noon 21st and until Tuesday 26th will be dispatched Wednesday 27th.

Orders received between noon Friday 29th and Monday 1st January will dispatch Tuesday 2nd January.

Full details of cut-off times below.

As always I will answer emails over the Christmas period, although I will be taking Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day off completely. The rest of the time I will be checking and responding to emails pretty much as usual.

The phone will however be answered by the machine!
