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.

  • 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.
