Covid19/Coronavirus & BREXIT - How it affects our business update - as of 5th January 2021

Today, the government has announced a second full lockdown and therefore our trading rules & guidelines have tightened up as the virus spreads again.

Clearly ALL book fairs are cancelled for the forseeable future and it is anticipated that this will continue well into the summer of 2021. However, we can continue to supply your book needs without attending a fair! Simply contact us by email or phone with your "wants list" and we'll do the rest. We will also try to keep in touch with our regular book fair customers around the UK and we're confident that we can manage a "virtual book fair" mail order service very easily. We are also participating in the PBFA Virtual book fairs on the 29th of each month @  

Our internet Business continues as usual. Fortunately we have both kept in good health throughout the pandemic so we're able to maintain a relatively normal mail internet & mail order service. Royal Mail continue to help us by collecting our outward mail on a daily basis which is a great help. 

Despite the fact that the UK has now officially left the EU, we are still able to dispatch books to most International destinations and ALL Countries based in the EU, including Northern Ireland.

Finally, we really hope that things dont get too much worse in this extended second wave & lockdown, so in the meantime please take care and stay safe, wherever you are in the world.


Heather & Jeff.
