You can now come into the store provided you scan or sign in, wear a mask and maintain a 2 metre distance from others. This is for our safety and yours. You can still order online or over the phone and we will courier to you, or you can collect your order from the door. If you choose to collect your order you will receive an email when your order is ready for collection.

Please be patient with deliveries. The Courier network is significantly affected by the Covid disruptions and deliveries are taking significantly longer than usual.

We thank you for your support during the restricted trading levels.
