Royal Mail strike update

Negotiations between Royal Mail and the CWU have proved to be non conclusive with the two day strikes going ahead on 22nd and 23rd October.
There is also talk of two further strikes next week, which are, as yet, unconfirmed.

Fear not, we will still be posting while the strikes are on. As always, our standard postage is free (worldwide is free for orders over £30).
We have decided to not use a courier due to the cost and delay in delivery (up to 5 days), but
during the strikes we will be reducing the cost of Special Delivery to £3.50, offering you a £2.00 saving on the normal cost.

Royal Mail has advised that they will prioritise the delivery of Special Delivery items on strikes days, though they cannot guarantee the normal next day delivery normally offered for this service.

If you are concerned about the delivery of your order, but do not require it urgently, we also offer Recorded Delivery for just £1. Items sent through this service may be affected by the same time delays are standard mail, but you will be provided with a tracking number so you can see where on your journey you item/s are.
