Unfortunately, we are still not up to speed with our normal work so there has not been any movement on the Townsfolk projects. We are working all hours with lower paid work to keep the business running and there are signs of normal orders starting to come in.
I realise you are frustrated with the lack of progress, but we have not given up and we still intend to fulfill, we just need more time.
We are getting a few backers either giving negative reviews on our other company Jon Stynes Design or leaving negative comments on our social media. This will not help us get our work back to normal and could only delay the project more.
So, all I can ask, is be patient and we will sort this out ASAP.
We've had a lot of people requesting the digital files, so until we can get the physical items sorted, we will make a start on sorting the digital files to send out. This will take a little time, as they are currently set up for the casting process ( i.e. in lots of individual bits!).
Thank you to all the backers who have sent us messages of support, it really has meant a lot.

I'll try to be positive with this update, but no doubt will take the usual flack from the usual backers.
At the moment, as I've explained before, we're trying to generate funds so we can produce the final items and get them shipped. This has been tough due to the lack of our normal motorsport work. Our area has now gone into tier 4, like many other parts of the country, which will not help at all. With the work we do have, we are only managing to cover our normal overheads, rent, bills etc.
All I can say is once our work does get back to some sort of normality, we would need approx. 6 weeks of manufacture (along side our normal work) and then we plan to ship gradually, as we raise funds for this.
I know this is not what you want to hear, but it is the best we can do.
For those that think we have give up and are not going to deliver, we certainly have not. If I'd ever planned to do this, I would have liquidated the company and walked away a long time ago. So please bear with us and we'll get this project fulfilled as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, we are still not up to our normal level of production in the workshop, but there are signs of it getting better over the next month or two. Hopefully then we have a steady income again and we can get a start on the final production for Black Hallows. We are still filling our time producing medical visors for the NHS, but this has very little profit, so just covers our overheads.
I'm sorry there's no movement with the project, but please bare with us and stay positive, it is just going to take time. Obviously the current situation we are having is affecting us all in a big way, but surely things will start to improve soon.

First of all, can I apologise for the lack of updates, we had delayed this one while we have been waiting to hear exactly where we stand with our current workflow.
Our normal contracts have been put on hold, but we have just heard yesterday that we can start manufacture again in approx. 3 weeks (material stock has now arrived for this). Before the Covid-19 outbreak, we were getting back on track and not far off starting production again of the remaining Black Hallows items, so we would imagine that this will now be delayed for around six weeks while we catch up.
In the mean time we have been working all hours, 7 days a week, producing medical visors for the NHS, Ambulance services and Care homes. This is being done at non-profit, but at least we are helping the staff in front line positions. We have so far sent out over 5,000 visors and are looking at approx. another 10,000 plus in the next few weeks. Our design has been approved by the NHS and because it is re-useable, they are replacing the disposable versions they are currently using.
So please guys, don't give up on us, we are doing our best to get your pledges out to you as soon as we can. We will update you again when we get back to normal production.
