Revised Shop opening hours


Our Shop is now Open

As we ease ourselves into an element of normality we are revising our Shop opening hours.
We will now be open Tuesday, Friday and Saturday 10:00 – 3:00 starting from this Saturday (18th July). We are still  open for private Appointments outside of these hours. Please call us to arrange.

However, you can still shop online or by phone (mail order), where a visit is not possible.
We do continue to appreciate your orders, which have kept us going through this difficult time. Things are not back to normal yet!

Revised Postal Charges

Royal Mail post box
Due to recent increases by Royal Mail (and other carriers) we have had to increase some of our postal charges, mainly affecting our international customers. As we work on a flat rate postage basis, we want to assure you that should you only order small amounts or small items we will refund any excess postage charges, at time of dispatch.

For orders shipped to UK addresses we still offer Free Delivery for orders over £50 (subject to a 2kg weight limit).
