Spring is just about on us and despite the economy limping along we are open for business as usual. You can make orders for Medlar books in the usual ways - directly via this website or by phone, email or post. Royal Mail strikes affecting our deliveries are still possible but posting is currently operating reasonably well. We'll let you know when any more disruptions are due.
