Shipping and Returns

Unfortunately Royal Mail strike action is affecting our deliveries.
We will ensure that your order leaves us in a timely manner as outlined below. There may however be delays in delivery times when strike actions take place. If you have an urgent parcel we recommend selecting Evri Express shipping at the checkout. 
Apologies for any inconvenience this causes you.
