Coronavirus (COVID-19)

It seams that due to self isolation and working from home, a lot of our customers are taking this time to build and therefore we are extremely busy at the moment and are unable to answer the phone as much as we would like to (09:00 - 4.00pm with a break for lunch between 12 noon and 1pm

We are sending out orders as fast as we can via the post office and Parcel Force. In this 2nd lock down there seams to be some extra delays with some orders posted via the Post Office and Parcel Force. Unfortunately this is outside of our control. These are troubling times so please be patient. We are all doing are best to service our customers.
