We will continue to take pre-orders for forthcoming lines, however if we do not receive sufficient stock to cover all of the orders, we will supply to customers on a first-come-first-served basis. The current pre-order dates on the website are placeholders that are likely to change depending on the length of the Covid-19 lockdown in place in England.
