Royal Mail delays in Lockdown 3.0

Most of our orders are dispatched to you via Royal Mail and so far during the current pandemic they've been doing a great job.  As you might have seen on the news recently they are now starting to struggle with their services in some areas due to illness and staff self-isolating.

As a result they have issued the following list of areas where their services will be delayed;

The areas affected are:

  • Ashford (TN23-TN27)
  • Barnsley (S70, S71, S72 and S75)
  • Basildon (SS13-SS16)
  • Bow (E3)
  • Bury St Edmunds (IP28-IP33)
  • Chelmsford (CM1-CM3)
  • Christchurch (BH23)
  • Daventry (NN11)
  • Debden (IG7-IG10)
  • Enfield (EN1-EN3)
  • Grays (RM16-RM20)
  • Hampton (TW12)
  • Highbury (N5)
  • Hornsey (N8)
  • Horsham (RH12, RH13)
  • Ilford (IG1-IG6)
  • Leeds City (LS1-LS5)
  • Lewisham (SE13)
  • Magherafelt (BT45, BT46)
  • Margate (CT7-CT9)
  • Rugeley (WS15)
  • Somerton (TA11)
  • South Ockendon (RM15)
  • South Woodford (E18)
  • Upper Holloway (N7)
  • Wandsworth (SW18)
  • Wellington (TA21)
  • Widnes (WA8)


If you live in one of the postcodes listed above its likely your delivery will take longer than the normal 2 to 3 working days from when its dispatched by us.

We are going to monitor the situation before taking any action as being honest the other delivery services are also being affected by the same pressures.

We will upgrade all orders under 1Kg from 2nd Class to 1st Class as that will hopefully help delivery times.
