Covid-19 Operations Update April 12 2021

Today, Monday 12th April 2021, many non-essential retail businesses are opening their doors to the public once again as lockdown restrictions start to ease across Wales. Unfortunately, we are not one of those due to extensive building work being undertaken at present. We are closed to the public until further notice. We are happy to say we are still operating online as per usual. Royal Mail is collecting our post the next working day after your order is processed.

European ParcelForce delays: there are significant delays using our courier, ParcelForce, to European countries due to customs and Brexit complications on the courier's part. Please only select this method of posting if you are not in a hurry to receive the book and are happy with a delay of what could be up to 2 months, possibly longer.

Please note Royal Mail has suspended delivery to a few countries – more information here: If your country is listed as ‘on suspension’ you are very welcome to order and we will ship as soon as we can.ParcelForce shipments are arriving outside of Europe albeit with a small delay due to Covid 19.
