Shop temporarily closed

Hi everyone, unfortunately Ann was taken into hospital on Friday 10/9/21. She's going to be fine, but it means that the shop will have to be closed for a bit. Online orders will still be processed and we'll reply to emails and phone calls as quickly as we can, but there are likely to be some delays until things get back to normal. Hopefully this will be soon, and we'll post updates as and when we can. Sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime, and thanks for your understanding. Stuart & Ann
