Royal Mail Strike Dates

Please be aware of Royal Mail strike dates throughout October-December found below;
To mitigate against order delays, we have negotiated an improved rate with DPD. During busy periods, we may or may not be able to respond to all communication regarding order delays, especially where orders are delayed by only a day or two. Though from years of previous experience dealing with the Royal Mail, a day's delay within the Royal Mail leads to a day/two days delay with order processing, meaning all orders should be received within a week at worst case scenario from the point of order.
From the Royal Mail's website (effective Sept 2022);
