Gift Vouchers

If you are stuck for what to suggest when you are asked, "What do you want for Christmas?",  just think how much fun you could have wandering round here with a Kitty Krafts Gift Voucher burning a hole in your pocket.

We can do vouchers for any value from only £5 upwards and they're valid for 6 months, though I doubt anyone would be able to wait that long to spend one.

So tell your other half / significant other / bidey in / spouse / son / daughter / brother / sister / Mum / Dad (delete as appropriate) to pop down and solve at least one of your Christmas present problems.

Royal Mail strikes again! (Ross's Rant)

No, they're not on strike again, just being their new efficient self.

The Sorting Office for the DD4 and DD5 postcodes is one of the Sorting Offices being used as a guinea pig for the new system that is supposed to be implemented throughout the country shortly.  This much vaunted new system will improve efficiency, save money and improve the service to customers.

That'll be why we received mail yesterday dated the 26th November.  That'll be why we, as a business, have gone from daily deliveries to 2-3 times a fortnight.  I see our postman in Tesco more often than I see him delivering here, which is a scary thought considering we both live nearly 20 miles away from the shop!

So, if you are one of the unfortunate people who live in the DD4 & DD5 postcodes, who are wondering why your mail service has suddenly got so bad in recent weeks it's quite simple really.  It isn't the snow (they have done an amazing job really getting out and about), it isn't the Christmas rush, it is simply that Royal Mail bosses have decided to improve the service.
