Olympics 2012 Update

Dear Customer,

With the London Olympics and Paralympics starting shortly we would like to update you on our delivery service during the following dates: 25th July - 12 August (Olympics) and the 29th August- 9th September (Paralympics).

From the information available to date, the major disruptions to traffic in the central London area (Monday-Friday) will be restricted to three ‘Road Events’ (detail dates attached).

On these days we will endeavour to continue our normal delivery service - though we may experience some delays due to the volume of traffic in the areas indicated.

Our central London depot is ideally located to enable us to continue with our normal delivery service during both events. Our overnight answerphone service will be in operation, allowing you to place orders up until 6.00am for same day delivery.

We have the capability and flexibility to support your delivery requirements during the Olympics and Paralympics. However, should you require a different solution to your normal delivery service, please email us by 25th May on

Thank you for your co-operation and on-going custom
