Fighting 15s: Service update 8 January

Followers of the Fighting 15s Facebook page will be aware that although Fighting 15s opened as planned on 2 January, it fairly shortly shut again owing to illness – the particularly debilitating cold that’s been doing the rounds – and I have been forced to take four days of bed rest. I’m self-employed and of course I rarely stop work if I’m ill.

I now feel fit enough to start packing figures into boxes again, if not yet casting. Of course, a mountain of orders has built up, in spite of Fighting 15s opening between Christmas and New Year, and there will be delays in dealing with, casting, and dispatching orders. I’m particularly sorry to the five customers who have been waiting for me to cast stuff since Fighting 15s closed on 20 December, but those orders should still all go out within the target of seven to 28 days for casting – though admittedly towards the maximum of that period.

In addition, please be aware that my mother died on 30 December and that I may also be tied up with family matters from time to time until the funeral on 22 January. She was 80 and has been unable to speak for three years because of a severe stroke. As I’d seen her on 21 and 27 December and seen a marked deterioration in her condition, the loss was not entirely unexpected. Thank you for your understanding at this time.

Be assured that I plan to remain fully communicative with my customers, that orders should start going out the door again from today, and that I will be working as hard as circumstances allow to reduce the backlog and get back to normal service. I hope to start casting again from Wednesday 10 January.
