"It's Christmaaaaas!"

So you have time to plan (it's good to be ahead of the game) we've got some information to help you plan your Christmas gift buying.

As many of you may already be aware Royal Mail will be subjected to staff strikes during the build up to Christmas so you may need to be even more prepared than usual!

Royal Mail staff are definitely striking on the 9th, 11th, 14th & 15th of December with potential further strikes on the 23rd & 24th of December.

Below is a guide to the cut-off dates for a Christmas delivery. In previous years these would usually be dates we could guarantee a Christmas delivery for but this year they can only be used as a guide. Sadly we cannot guarantee delivery unless you choose the Next Day service because FedEx deliver all next day parcels and they will not be impacted by the industrial action.
