1st Clevedon Scout Group are once again running their local Christmas Card postal service for Clevedon residents again in 2019. The money raised from this event is essential to help keep the Scout Group running and to maintain the various activities we offer all our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
Many businesses in Clevedon support us each year by selling our Scout Christmas Stamps (30p each this year) and having one of our Scout Christmas Post Boxes in their shop. Throughout December the Scout Group will be collecting, sorting and delivering Christmas Cards – last post collection being 2pm on Saturday 14th December.
CHRISTMAS POST BOXES AT LOCAL RETAILERS
There are 8 venues across Clevedon this year where you can buy stamps and post your cards:
- Cafe Fusion
- Clevedon DIY
- Mark Templar
- Reeds Rains
- Six Ways Sports
- Spinning Weal
- Veg Box
- Vision Express
HELP SORT THE POST
The upstairs meeting room at the Scout Hut becomes our sorting office from the beginning of December. Here the Christmas Cards are franked and then sorted into over 60 delivery rounds. This years sorting dates are:
- Tuesday 10th – Scout Hut and post sorting room open from approx. 6pm
- Monday 16th – Scout Hut and post sorting room open from approx. 6pm
SIGN UP TO A DELIVERY ROUND AND HELP DELIVER THE POST
A volunteers board has been placed in the entrance hall of the Scout hut – this is where you or your son/daughter can sign up to a Christmas Card delivery round. The Christmas Cards will be sorted for each round and made available for you to collect from the sorting room on most nights that there is a Beaver, Cub or Scout Meeting taking place – keep your eyes peeled on facebook as well.
How do I sign up to help out? – Pop along to the hall and sign up for a round, talk to one of our leaders during a Scouting sessions or message us through the website or our facebook page.
Please help us to make this another successful year for the group and offer a great service to the people of Clevedon that support us.
Thank you from your Beaver, Cub & Scout Leaders
