As you may be aware we have struggled to meet our normal customer service standards following the short notice move of our packing area. Despite the best efforts of our small team over the last few weeks, we are simply unable to recover from this devastating move fast enough.
We have thus made the decision to stop trading.
If you have an order outstanding, please refer to your credit card company or PayPal who will arrange a refund.
