    Hi,

    I’ve just sent off some post today for Lyme bay. Any idea on when this might reach the ship?
    Is there a specific thread for Lyme bay somewhere which I have missed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Claudia,
     
    It all depends on when the ship collects its mail, there is no set time for delivery. I would give it a couple of weeks. Then when you are in contact with your person on RFA Lyme Bay ask them if they have received it.

    Hi again,

    Is there a specific thread for Lyme Bay friends and family? I’m aware it is a smaller ship but assumed there would be? I was looking how at how I might start one off but can’t seem to find the right place.

    Thank you,

    Charlotte
