For a short period there will be a delay in despatching books ordered via mail order. I am due to have a replacement knee operation on the 30th of January. Following this I am not allowed to drive for 6 weeks. I am relying on felow members to get the orders to me. I do have a small stock of the most popular books at home to cover these orders.
