Scout Christmas Post 2017


Dear Parents,

We are once again this year taking part in the Salisbury and District Scout Christmas Postal Service. For those of you who are new to the group the Scout Christmas Post is a fund raising event that makes the group money and at the same time saves you money! The stamps cost 25p each and can be delivered in the areas set out below. The Scout Group receives 10p for every stamp sold and 10p for every card that we, as a group, deliver. We will be selling Stamps and collecting, sorting and delivering Post. The special scout stamps are available from your section leaders at section meetings as well as all the locations detailed below. Once you have stuck the stamps on your cards please post them in one of the special post boxes, the locations stated below. Once all the cards are posted they are collected and taken into Salisbury to be sorted and then we are given all the cards for our area, ie all parts of the Bourne Valley and Ford, to deliver. We will require lots of help with this part of the operation so we will be asking all of you to offer to deliver cards in the area you live. If you have a particular area you would like to deliver cards please let Shirley Moores, Group Scout Leader know asap. The cards will be distributed to you, the deliverers, at the Group Christmas Party, 12th  December, 6.30pm – 8pm (if you cannot make the party but would be prepared to deliver cards please let us know and we will save an area for you and arrange to get them to you). Thank You.

Jon Moores

Chairman of the Bourne Valley Scout Group Executive Committee
