Please make an appointment (01923 220206) so that we can ensure that staff have time available to assist you. We operate from a unit on an industrial estate, not a shop, not even a showroom, so please let us know which items you would like to see and what time (to the nearest hour) you wish to visit.

You will be encouraged to open and check the items, to make sure that they are suitable for your needs.

If our office door is open we will see you, if not, tap on the glass, but do not come in. If you have not yet done so, put your mask on. There is a little table outside the door so that you can check that the items are suitable for your needs.

We hope that these restrictions will be lifted on 21 June.
