 What to expect after Brexit
While we are doing all we can to reduce any inconvenience for you, there are some unavoidable changes to how we operate relating to Brexit:

• It will not be possible to place orders for delivery outside the UK.

• Delivery into Northern Ireland will no longer be possible.

• Delivery into the Channel islands will no longer be possible.

We apologise sincerely to those affected for any issues you might face as a result of these changes which are beyond our control.
 Looking to the future…
