Christmas Posting Dates

When you are looking to stock up in the run-up to Christmas, or top-up during the New Year, this page gives you all the information you need on our last recommended order dates and opening times.

As usual, we will be processing and dispatching orders right up to (and including) Friday 22nd December. 

From the beginning of November to Christmas, we get very busy processing orders which means we are right at the limit of our standard delivery dispatch time of 4 to 5 working days.  If you require your order within 2 or 3 days of the date it is placed then to guarantee delivery you will need to select our PRIORITY SERVICE.  We will do our best to get standard orders out quickly on our standard service.

If you want your order BEFORE CHRISTMAS please place it by the dates shown below.  These are a guide and although we will do our best, we advise that you place your order well in advance of these dates to guarantee delivery before Christmas.  Orders placed close to or on the dates below must be paid for at the time of ordering.
