Shiny new website

You may have noticed something different about us recently… No, we haven’t had a haircut, we’ve got a shiny new website!

web-construction

We hope you’ll like all its new features, including live stock availability, an improved search function and completely re-vamped mobile version. As with all new things, it may take a little getting used to – we have had to move things around a bit to fit in with the new system, so you may need to update any saved bookmarks etc.
