Parcelforce Industrial Action impact on delivery timings
Friday 26 August, Wednesday 31 August, Thursday 8 September and Friday 9 September 2022
While we have been informed that contingency plans are in place to assure the delivery of as many parcels as possible, service will be affected on these dates and may lead to delays, compounded by the bank holiday on the 29th August.
Should you need to order from us, we therefore strongly recommend that you place your order as soon as possible to ensure it reaches you before the start of the industrial action. We will continue to endeavour to process and despatch your order within 3-5 working days and will try our utmost to get as many parcels packed and sent out in advance of the strikes to minimise any disruption.
Please note that no timed delivery slots can be offered on the strike action dates and the Parcelforce customer care team won’t be in service, which will delay any delivery queries.
Thank you for your patience, and we hope this advance warning will help you plan for any baking you may have scheduled.
Back in the day Stokies would pass half a dozen Oatcake Shops to buy from their favourite place. It's all about the texture, flavour "and 'em not being being too thick, duck".
In homage to High Lane, Tunstall I now make these in exile at home in the Welsh hills on a cast iron planc usually used for Welsh Cakes.
A quick and easy granary loaf with a bit of Oatmeal and Barley thrown in (a bit of a using up stuff in the cupboard recipe) I use a bread machine to do all the grunt work, but it would be just us good made in a mixer with a dough hook or even made by hand.
We love to see what you've been baking, but are just updating this section at the moment - we will be able to accept new community recipes in the near future, please don't try to upload in the meantime as we won't be able to accept the photo or send a voucher yet.
Once new additions can be welcomed, if you add one of your own baking recipes with a photo to the Shipton Mill website, we will send you a voucher for 5% off your next order from the Flour Direct shop.
