With the end of the second UK lockdown, I now have access to my normal premises. This is good news, as I can cast the items which ran out during the last month and I have access to my laser cutter again. Unfortunately, the landlord has indicated that the premises will close from 18/12/2020 to 04/01/2021 and has provided no details as to any plans should my area enter Tier 3 restrictions following the Christmas relaxations. As such, I can’t commit to moving my printers and stock back there until next year.
This means I am working out of three locations:
- Home office: sculpting & FDM print-on-demand scenery etc.
- Main premises: mouldmaking, casting, and laser-cutting.
- Interim premises: Order packing, & resin printing.
As you may imagine, this is far from efficient. So, whilst we’re out of lockdown, I have to ask for your continued patience, especially as we are well into the festive shipping period.
All affected customers have been very understanding, and I really appreciate that.
The elephant in the industry is, of course, the unknown Brexit situation. There’s only so much a business can do to prepare when details are unknown, but I will be doing all I can to minimise disruption and increased cost to MCM customers.
Thanks to you all, enjoy your Christmas, and stay safe.
