UPDATE: Problems contacting us by email

We are currently not able to receive emails. Our IT provider has been subject to a cyber attack. From the checks they have carried out so far, they do not believe our systems have been affected, however as a precautionary measure we have blocked all external emails from reaching our servers, until they can assure us that this is the case.

Emails from us are not affected by the block that is in place, so you should still receive contact from us in this way, although it may take slightly longer than normal. 

We will let you know when these issues are resolved.

If you need us urgently, please call us.
