Office Answerphone Problems!
We discovered earlier this week that our office answerphone has been taking messages but then not showing us they are there, nor allowing us to retrieve them. It’s possible it may have been doing this for a couple of weeks. Our sincere apologies to anyone this has affected. The system has been fixed now but it’s also worth saying that as the office is only manned intermittently the best way of receiving a prompt enquiry response is by email – you can use the message facility on the website shop or email us direct. Apologies again if you’ve been affected by this problem.
