Postponement of Bicentenary Plans

March 2020

It has become clear over the last few days that we are all living through unprecedented times as the speed and scale of the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 impacts the global community and economy.

John Dickson and Son is a small business located in Perthshire, Scotland with a global customer base. We have been closely monitoring the guidance issued by the UK Government and the Scottish Parliament, alongside advice from the World Health Organisation to ensure that we do all we can to prioritize the well-being of our team in Dunkeld as well as our suppliers and customers. As such, if you do visit us, please be aware that, while the shop and workshop remain open unless the advice recommends otherwise,  we have advised the team not to shake hands, although you will of course be welcomed with customary Scottish warmth and hospitality.

The focus of the global community for the foreseeable future has to be tackling the pandemic.  With IWA Outdoor Classics sensibly postponed and a number of other important shows/exhibitions contemplating postponement, alongside the restrictions on travel and social gatherings, we have taken the decision to postpone our Bicentenary plans until 2021.

We hope that everyone in the Dickson family stays safe and well over the coming months, and we look forward to the opportunity to celebrate with you all in 2021. We will keep you updated of our new schedule, however in the meantime we remain open for business repairing, restoring and building shotguns and rifles; delivering Scottish excellence as we have done for 200 years.

Wishing you all the best in these trying times.

Kind Regards

J-P Daeschler

Managing Director
