The last week for despatches of pools will be the week beginning the 11th December and it would be wise to ensure that any pool wanted for Christmas is despatched before the Tuesday because couriers are extra busy at this time of year. The last despatches will be on Monday 18th but we cannot guarantee their arrival before Christmas.
The offices will close Tuesday 19th Dec and will re-open on Wednesday 3rd Jan to deal with return collections and getting baptistries back to base. No hires will be sent out that week as there won’t be enough week left! Back to normal on 8th January.
Easter will fall on 1st April next year. Leaving aside the obvious jokes, we want to warn customers that the number of pools available for hire will, effectively, be smaller this year.
Normally, if someone hired a baptistry one week, you’d be able to hire it the week or fortnight after. This doesn’t apply in the Easter season because there are no deliveries on Good Friday and Easter Monday. Added to this, courier companies are extra busy at this time as well. A baptistry only has to arrive back a day late or not in a good state, and the whole schedule gets even more frantic. For us, this has become a logistical nightmare.
This year, if someone books a pool for Palm Sunday, it won’t be available for Easter. More significantly, if a pool is booked for Easter, it will not be available for Palm or Low Sunday. Do please plan and book ahead. We have already had bookings for 2018.
The run up to Easter is also a busy time for heater purchases, particularly as people get old heaters out to test for Easter and then find they don’t work. Please don’t leave it until the last minute. heaters
