If you’re in the UK you’ll probably know this, but for the benefit of our overseas customers, Royal Mail staff are staging a series of strikes which could affect our shipping times. The first one was last week and the second yesterday, so although we shipped out a lot of orders today they will probably be caught in the backlog. There will be more strikes next week – these are on consecutive days (8th and 9th) so there will be significant delays then. We will post as many orders as we can on the 7th to try and get ahead of the strike. We then have a final late summer holiday break for a week after that, so no orders will be processed from September 9th to the 18th – we’ll deal with them as as fast as we can when we return on the 19th.
In other news, we’re going back to Colours at Newbury Racecourse for the first time since 2019. The show is on Saturday week (September 10th) and, as a thank you to a very patient public, the organisers have decided to make entrance free for the day – so you can come along, have a look and the games and peruse the traders for nothing (you could spend the money you’ve saved on the entrance fee at our stand – just a suggestion … 🙂 ).
