11th January 2021 : Nationwide Lockdown for non-essential retail shops
This does not affect our online shop which remains open for orders.
OUR ONLINE SHOP OPERATING AS USUAL
We were determined to keep our online shop open during the pandemic as we know we have much that can help people through times of uncertainty, assisting them spiritually in prayer, as well as making available cards and resources that can be shared as reassurance - especially to family, friends, parish communities, etc. in isolation. We have managed to successfully do this, but still need to make customers aware that some deliveries may take a little longer as we are on restricted hours and are dependent on the various postal services we use, as, at present, these are sometimes affected by local lockdowns.
HOWEVER OUR WATERMEAD CENTRE SHOP IS AGAIN CLOSED
Although our online shop is continuing as usual (see below), our physical shop here at St Joseph's has again been closed to customers to comply with the Government's "non-essential retail" instructions. Our Centre's shop does have thousands of items and to enable as much as possible of this stock to still be made available we are adding it here to this online shop as "Click and Collect" items - some of which will be suitable for posting. This will add a variety to what we usually offer through our online shop and complement the items that Watermead actually produces. So, if you do not see what you require contact us and ask, and someone will come back to you.
Do bare with us. We are a small family business and the current working restrictions do impact on the projected turn-around of orders and our usually prompt ability to answer queries.
AND WHEN WE FINALLY CAN OPEN OUR CENTRE'S SHOP AGAIN
When we are given the go-ahead to open our Centre's shop note that precautions will be as before - a limit of two customers allowed in the shop at any one time and it is now a law that people wear a face covering in shops. Customers will not be admitted without one. We have hand sanitiser for visitor's use as they enter the shop and we expect ALL to use this before entering fully into the displays area.
OUR DOWNLOAD RESOURCES
Our download resources ("free" and those that are costed) will not be affected by any lock-down of the Watermead Centre or reduction in our staff - please order and download as usual.
