Scouts offer 15p Christmas post delivery service across Burnham area

Huntspill and Highbridge Scout Group are gearing up to launch their popular low-cost Christmas card delivery service across the Burnham-On-Sea area.

The service has been provided by the group for many years and it is one of its key fundraising events, requiring hours of work by the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their parents, as well as a band of dedicated helpers.

Cards are delivered to Pawlett, East and West Huntspill, Highbridge, Burnham-On-Sea and Berrow at a cost of just 15p per card and deliveries will be completed by Christmas Eve.

Pat Weller, Group Treasurer, told this week: "The Cubs have been busy getting all the boxes ready."

"These will be placed in the following businesses from 1st December - Pawlett Stores, The Crossways Inn, West Huntspill, The Crown Stores, East Huntspill, Snippers Hairdressers, Highbridge DIY and ASDA in Highbridge, the Burnham Road Stores, and West Coast properties, Thomas’s Shoe repairs, Lidl’s and Rectory Road Stores in Burnham."

She added: "We endeavour to deliver all the cards we receive that have a full address, but lack of an 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."

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supports our Scout Group by using the service and especially the businesses which allow our boxes to be placed in their premises."
