New website coming soon

We are launching our exciting new website in phases over the rest of the year, and we are looking forward to bringing you an enhanced shopping experience, with easier access to a refreshed product catalogue of great products and educational resources

To do this, we are making some changes to our internal systems. We are still accepting and processing all existing and new orders on our website or through our customer services team. On a temporary basis, we’re not offering next day delivery. We thank you for your ongoing patience as we complete these changes.

Read on to learn more about how you can prepare for the launch of our new website.

New login process

We are changing the way you login into our new website. On our new website, you will be asked to login using your account email address, not your username. Your password will remain the same.

Please check that you know the email address associated with your account by navigating to your account dashboard and selecting ‘Settings’ to view your account details.

You can continue logging in using your username on our existing website.

If you have any queries on the launch of our new website, please email us at [email protected]

If you have already placed an order then please be assure this will be fulfilled, but if you have any questions please contact us.
