Hi everyone, 

Firstly, as we are in strange and uncertain times, I would just like to say that I hope you and your families are safe and well. I know that sudden change beyond our own control can cause anxiety and worry and it is important that we look after ourselves and each other as much as possible at this time.

Following government advice, as an online retailer we are allowed to continue with this side of the business. I am conscious that in doing so we will be asking key workers to help deliver your orders. With this in mind I am only going to make the trip to the post office once a week in order to minimise the risk of both contracting the virus but also spreading it. I hope that you understand this policy. 

Parva Spices HQ is located in the rural Wye Valley and it is very easy for me to not come into contact with anyone at all so I feel quite safe. However I do have a history of spontaneous pneumothorax (collapsed lungs to the non medical!) and so I hope you understand that I really do not want to catch a lung disease.

That said, I need to keep working, as much for my sanity as anything else. I am really missing the farmers markets and food festivals that form the core part of the business. I am quite a chatty fool as those of you that have met me will know! I can't wait to bore more of the general public as soon as possible!! 

I currently have a limited amount of stock over a small number of product lines. I am working to resolve this as much as possible. If there is something that you would like that is sold out please drop me an email for likely availability. 

Too long, didn't read version: Your orders are going to take 7-10 days to reach you. 

Best wishes,
