DIAMOND CONFIRM NEW SCHEDULE FOR DELIVERIES
We have previously announced that Diamond would be recommencing weekly deliveries from 20th May. As a result of various factors (their own warehouse capacity if they are to maintain social distancing and protect their staff, availability and cost of air freight and the need to be consistent) they have now revised and reduced this schedule. Deliveries will now re-start on Wednesday 27th May, and be fortnightly until the end of June, at which point they will reassess the situation.
The new schedule is as follows.
Wednesday May 27th (Regular timed deliveries to be made on Wed 27th due to Bank Holiday Mon 25th May)
Wednesday June 10th
Wednesday June 24th
What will actually be shipping on those dates is unclear at present. We'll keep you informed.

Seventies kung-fu magic, based on an ancient Chinese legend and really really badly dubbed into English from (I think) Cantonese (it might have been Mandarin), this was a friday night staple when I was a kid. It's magnificent, and I can't believe I haven't shared this sooner.
