CUSTOMER BLADED WEAPONS WARNING

Currently Parliament is reviewing legislation around the sending / receiving of bladed articles to your home address. If successful, you will no longer be able to receive your purchases to your home. The lead in this change is MP Victoria Atkins. If you object to this Bill as much as Colchester Militaria does, we ask that you sign the petition to remove collectors from the Bill.

Petition: https://petition.uk/petitions/222776

We also ask that as many people as possible object to the Bill by emailing:

Victoria@victoriaatkins.org.uk

Please note that if the Offensive Weapon Bill is passed unchanged, these items can still be purchased but only be delivered to a business address "or" collected from a show or exhibition.
