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'."
