1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Avery = Laithwaites. If you look on their websites now, both show exactly the same message (both closed).

    Mullardman Moderately extreme...

    I made my first ever order from Virgin last Thurs... billed as 'Next Day'. It arrived yesterday ( Tuesday)
    They and seemingly everyone else have been down since.

    Not in Northern Ireland. In their infinite wisdom, our bunch of local 'politicians' decided to close off licences, thereby putting more pressure on Tesco, Sainsbury's etc. Good decision chaps, on a par with most of the others you've made.

    Not sure where you are, Mike, but I have at the back of my mind you may be south of Manchester, maybe Poynton?

    If so, then Reserve Wines (based in West Didsbury, but also in Altrincham Market and Mackie Mayor in the city centre) are offering a home delivery service within a reasonable radius. They also offer free delivery over £50, presumably by carrier.

    Disclaimer, one of the managers there is a mate. Their wines start at supermarket prices and move on up from there, but there's loads of very good and interesting stuff at a tenner or thereabouts.

    Thanks, Steve, sounds excellent. I'm certainly south of Manchester, but down on the East Sussex coast so too far away. Unfortunately all our decent independ wine merchants seem to have gone, though we do have several local vineyards close by. Their wine (and beer!) is very good, but tends to be a bit pricey for everyday drinking and the range is limited, not unreasonably, to what they can produce.

    Ah, sorry, my mistake. Hopefully somebody else reading this thread might find it useful, though.

    Hennings have stopped delivering with their own vans, but are still delivering through DPD.

    My Father-in-Law uses The Wine Society.

    Every year we get a case of 12 assorted reds and whites , sometimes a crate of fizz.

    It is horrible, and I wouldn't recommend them at all.

    (they aren't taking orders or delivering due to C-19, just checked)
