Note that we cannot guarentee delivery by a specific date. We rely on postal services around the world for delivery. The dates below are based on the recommended last posting dates for Christmas issued by the Royal Mail with time added to allow us to prepare the membership pack for posting. Note that delivery times may be faster for major cities especially those close to the port/airport where mail enters the country. The more time you give us the better.
