Scouts team up to offer low-cost Christmas post delivery service

Scouts in the Burnham-On-Sea area are gearing up to provide their popular low-cost Christmas post delivery service.

The 1st Huntspill and Highbridge Scout Group will be providing their festive delivery service throughout December.

"For the cost of just 15p per card, the Scout group will deliver Christmas cards to the Burnham-On-Sea, Berrow, Highbridge, East and West Huntspill and Pawlett areas," Pat Weller, Group Treasurer, told

"This service has been provided for many years now and is one of our bigger fund raising events, requiring hours of work by our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their parents as well as the Sedgemoor Explorer Scouts and our band of dedicated helpers."

The Scout's distinctive collection boxes have been located at the Murco Filling Station in Pawlett, and Pawlett Stores, The Crossways Inn, West Huntspill, The Crown Stores, East Huntspill, Smarts Newsagents, Snippers Hairdressers and ASDA in Highbridge, The Burnham Road Stores, and West Coast properties, Thomas’s Shoe repairs, Rectory Road Store and Lidl in Burnham and in Elizabeth Court (for residents).

The post boxes will be in place from December 1st and will be collected on Friday 17th December. Deliveries will begin on Saturday 18th December and will be completed by Christmas Eve.

"We endeavour to deliver all the cards we receive that have a full address, but lack of address (such as John and Jane) or destinations such as Brean, Bridgwater, Sheffield or Glasgow are beyond our capabilities and therefore incur costs for us to redirect them through Royal Mail," added Pat.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supports our Scout Group by using this service and hope that even more people will 'give us a try'."
