May Bank Holiday - Delivery of Gifts

Well Folks I'm sure you're all looking forward to this long Bank Holiday weekend, which means the day off work for most!

We've been busy sending your gift baskets today, for delivery on Tuesday 7th May when the courier companies re-open. Any perishable baskets containing fruit & salmon etc unfortunately can't be dispatched on a Friday, as they sit in the delivery depot over the weekend & so may not arrive in peak condition. We also decided against dispatching any gifts containing soft cheese today, as there are no deliveries on Monday & so the cheese would be in transit for an extra day.



When dispatching chilled items, Monday-Thursday, we send them on an overnight delivery service & they're packaged in a chilled envelope/pocket with ice packs. These remain cold & fresh for up to 72 hours. It's also expected to be a warm weekend (fingers crossed) so this might have lessened the chilled packaging life span.

We've been in touch with any customers affected and arranged to replace any cheese products with upgraded items, or for the gift to be dispatched next week instead.

Any new orders placed from Friday evening onwards (post 3pm GMT) will be assembled & dispatched on Tuesday 7th May, when our offices re-open and the delivery company (Nightline) begin collections again. Unless of course you are ordering in advance, when you can select your preferred future delivery date in the calendar.

Wishing you all a relaxing & refreshing holiday weekend!

The BGie Team
