Our Warehouse Heroes will be working over the Bank Holiday so your orders will still be picked and packed but we will NOT have a mail collection until Tuesday 26th May. Please be aware that this will affect deliveries placed w/c 18th May and w/c 25th May.
To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.

Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
