Left hand side: 
In the eyes of the worldly, to add to one’s years
Is a matter for sadness and sighing and tears.
They dislike the reminder they’re now growing old,
And they like it still less should it be that they’re told!
For they think to grow old is a step to decay
And they try all they can this dread hour to delay.
But let those who have faith take the Bible and see
What is said on the subject in Psalm Eighty-three.
Then how differently viewed is the passing of years,
Life is seen as a trek through a valley of tears.
As the body is weakened, the spirit grows strong,
And with joy in the heart, one now hastens along!
And one’s strength grows apace with the hope in the soul
that at last one is nearing the long-desired goal –
To behold God himself, as he is, face to face.
then who at this juncture would slacken his pace?
With a song in our hearts through this valley we go
With the happy assurance that life here below,
Like a pilgrimage, one day will come to its end
With the vision of God – our life’s goal attained!

Right hand side:

Delivery & Returns

Goods are usually posted as soon as possible after the order is received. There is no post at the weekends or bank (public) holidays. If there is a problem you will be informed of it. Please be aware that we are often at the mercy of the postal services and delivery agents. They will usually give an expected date but there may be mitigating circumstances like weather problems, strikes etc to delay the delivery. We always get a certificate of posting on overseas goods. This is a free service by the post office and is not insurance. The Royal Mail will not try to trace an item until 15 working days after it has been posted for local mail. For overseas mail, once it has knowingly left the country they have no trace on it as it has now gone into another country’s postal system. It is possible to get tracking but this is an added cost.

Should you be sent the wrong item and the fault is entirely ours we usually do not ask for the item to be returned due to the high costs of postage involved, but we are willing to replace it with the correct item or refund the payment made.

If you decide you do not want the item for any other reason, you are free to cancel the order. If the item has already been sent, we expect it to be returned in the condition it left us, before you receive a refund. You will be expected to pay the return postage.

Problems or complaints

If you need to complain about something you’ve bought, always come back to us and we will do our best to settle the problem or try to trace a missing parcel.
