Bert Turpin was born Saturday 6th September

The Highwaymen was closed for a week but is now open again, this week will be casual hours.  I will be in processing orders in the mornings, and then finishing early to go and play with my son and look after my wife. Next week I will be back to work full time and running the business as normal.

We apologise now for any inconvenience caused but we will do our best to respond to all emails as soon as possible.

Should anyone not be happy with the delays, please drop us an email at and let us know if you would require a cancellation. Refunds will be made as soon as the mail order is up to date.
