- Please note that your order on our website will be accepted by us, and a contract will then be formed between us, only at the point of shipping the goods to you.

All transactions will be charged in Sterling (if ordering using a payment card issued outside of the UK, be aware that the currency conversion will depend on the exchange rate and that your card issuer may charge a fee for processing the payment).
- Where possible we have tried to indicate the availability for all products. This is not a live status of current stock availability and, in some circumstances, products indicated as in stock may not be available from stock at the time of receipt of the order by us. Nevertheless we will contact you to inform you of this.
