Unfortunately, we are unable to reopen the shop as there is no way that we can ensure social distancing, to meet Government requirements.

However, we have re-introduced the ORDER and COLLECT scheme, which proved to be a success prior to the last lockdown.

ORDERS may be made by e-mail – [email protected]

(Please include a telephone contact number)

or contact John and Chris on tel. 0118 957 6684, or mobile 0751 0322 193.

Leaders and Parents placing orders for uniforms are requested to give us clear instructions of actual sizes required. (e.g. measurement of chest, waist etc as age is not always reliable.)

PAYMENT & COLLECTION – will be made by mutual appointment

Customers are welcome to collect their order from our home, at an agreed time and date. Payment may be made preferably by cheque rather than cash.

Alternatively, it may be possible for us to meet at Northcourt Avenue, but only by appointment. Here, payment may be made by card or cheque.

If cash is the only method you have, please feel free to talk to us.

We are not able to offer a postal service.

Once further restrictions are lifted, and we are confident that staff and customers will be safe, we shall be pleased to open the shop as before.

Updates regarding the shop will be placed on the shop website – news page.
