Covid-19 update - week commencing 25/05/2020

Currently it is business as usual at Valiant Wings Publishing. However, we are taking appropriate measures to minimise risk to recipients of our books and other products. We have also prohibited personal callers to our warehouse for now but as restrictions ease we will be reviewing this.
     
We are checking the Royal Mail website daily for service updates. So far mail continues to be collected, transported and delivered in the UK. The good news is that Royal Mail have resumed deliveries to most of the countries previously on suspension. However customers may still experience delays, the length of these being down to how well local services are operating. It is worth checking your own country’s postal service website to check on status for your postcode area. Some business contract services are still being held until backlogs are cleared.  Any customers in South Africa are advised not to place orders with us until June 1st.
     
We do strongly recommend that overseas customers use Tracked, Signed or Tracked & Signed services during this time so that you can monitor progress with your purchases.
     
Thank you very much for continuing to buy our books. Please stay safe and healthy.
