With news changing daily we are detirmined to keep our customers informed as to our current business arrangements.
Whilst we have now closed our walk-in shop, we continue to operate our online activities and will remain doing so until further instruction.
A number of our suppliers are unable to despatch goods, and any goods that we do not have in stock from closed suppliers will obviously lead to delays. Fortunately our stock levels are currently good on most products.
We will endeavour to update you as necessary should you place an order for stock we do not have and expect to see a delay with. If this is the case, we can refund the unavailable goods or we can leave it on back order for you and get items shipped as soon as we can.
OUR 2020/2021 WOODCRAFT COURSES
Due to COVID 19 we have postponed all of our 2020 SPRING and SUMMER woodcraft courses. All being well and if it's safe to do so, we'll resume with our scheduled AUTUMN programme and maybe add some additional courses to cover the ones cancelled earlier in the year. By then we'll all be in desperate need of some relaxing human interaction and quality hands-on craft!
Over the next few weeks and months (a bit earlier than normal) we'll start planning for 2021 and get course dates in the diary. The 2021 GREENWOOD CRAFT FOUNDATION COURSE is already booked in. Let us know if you want more information about this extended course.
STAY SAFE EVERYONE.
