Scout Christmas post

Bassetlaw District Scouts would like to thank everyone who used the Retford area Scouts Christmas Card postal service in 2012.

Over £1,100 was divided between the five scout groups that took part in the sorting and delivery of over 4,200 cards. This money was used to support scouting activities in the local area.

We could not have done it without the support of the shops, businesses and individuals that bought and sold stamps for the scout groups and all the volunteers who delivered the cards.

The areas we are covering in 2013 will be: Retford, Ordsall, Tuxford, East Markham, Askham, West Markham, North Leverton, South Leverton, Elkseley, Babworth, Clarborough, Welham, Hayton, Gamston,

Eaton and Rockley.

The Scout Post stamps will be on sale and can be posted from Thursday 28th November. Stamps will cost 30p each. The last day of posting will be Sunday 15th December at 3pm. Stamp outlets will be advertised nearer to the time. There will be one delivery that will take place after 15th December and all cards will be delivered in time for Christmas.

If any shops or local businesses would like to get involved in selling stamps on behalf of the local scout groups, please contact Kenny on 07958 735299 or your local scout group.
