23/11/2022
Plese be informed that Royal Mail will resume four days of national strike action on Thursday 24, Friday 25, Wednesday 30 November and Thursday 1 December 2022. This means there will be delays to the delivery of parcels.
To reduce the effect of missing parcels due to the backlog, or parcels being signifcantly delays, we have opted to ship parcels after the strike action has ended. We also recommend opting for the DPD next business day delivery, should you need your parcel urgently.

Royal Mail workers who collect, sort, and deliver parcels will be on strike on Friday 26 and Wednesday 31 August, and 8 and 9 September. The result of the Royal Mail strike is that there will be significant delays in parcel delivery.

To minimize the effect of the strike likely leading to delayed and/or missing parcels, all tracked and non-tracked shipping services (shipped via Royal Mail) will be temporarily removed from Monday, 22nd August. Only the DPD Next Business Day Delivery (same day shipping) service will be available. 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. This decision is in your interest to ensure your parcels arrive on time. We will continue to monitor things and restore those services when the backlog caused by the strike clears.
