Thank you to everybody who has supported us since we started selling our soap at the Aboyne Farmers Market. We have been so fortunate to have received such a warm welcome from the local community and everybody we’ve met at markets and events this last year.
Although we know soap kills the disease, we have concerns about supplying products in packaging and potentially infecting those we’re trying to help. So we advise customers to leave any packages in a safe place for the specified period of time (currently 4 days) before opening.
We will continue making local no contact deliveries, so please specify a safe place to leave your order. We will also use Hermes to make no contact deliveries, but will not be using Royal Mail as it requires us to go into a post office to drop off, and puts us at risk of contracting the illness.
We will not be offering “collection in person” for the next two weeks. The sooner everybody realises that the best way to contain COVID-19 is to stay at home, the sooner we can all get back to our “normal” lives.
You can continue to support us by purchasing e-vouchers for your loved ones, and we would very much appreciate it if you did!
We look forward to welcoming you back to our wee shop again very soon, and hope to get a local delivery service up and running over the coming weeks, when we are confident we are infection free.
Take care and stay strong.
