International Shipping Notice

Our postal service (Royal Mail) was recently the victim of a cyber attack affecting their overseas logistics. Thankfully, as far as we understand, none of our orders were affected.

For this month’s drop we could be impatient, take the risk of using an unfamiliar supplier, and doubling our shipping costs. But…

I experienced a website hack some years ago. I know the awful feeling. I also know that there are real people, working real hard to get things back up and running.

I know that there are real people who would be affected by our business going elsewhere. And, importantly, I know what’s it’s like to have loyal customers stand by you in a crisis.

I hope many of you will join with us by still ordering and in showing patience as you maybe wait a little longer for your parcel to be shipped.

I am keeping a close eye on the situation and the day I know it is safe to resume overseas shipping, I will be down the post office with your orders!

Patience is a virtue that is easy to lose in these days of "same day delivery" and "instant gratification". I hope you will join me in practising this virtue in waiting for Royal Mail to find its feet again.
