However, we urge all of our customers to complete their Christmas purchases as soon as possible, preferably well in advance of the advised last posting dates if possible.
We also strongly encourage all customers to opt for 1st class postage where possible, as indications seem to suggest that Royal Mail are currently heavily prioritising 1st class deliveries above all others.
