We are excited to announce that Scouts in Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Paulton and Peasedown will be delivering your Christmas Cards by hand in their local villages for the bargain price of 40p per card. All proceeds from the sale of stamps will go to help Scout Groups in our local area. Stamps are on sale and post boxes placed (with many thanks to local independent businesses) in the Midsomer Norton, Radstock and Peasedown St John areas. Last collection is on Dec 14th at noon and all (correctly addressed) cards will be delivered by hand by Christmas Eve.
In 1983 1st Midsomer Norton Scout Group commenced it’s very popular and successful Christmas Post Service using a stamp designed by a Group member. The Group undertook to deliver cards in the town and close neighbouring villages at a cost of 10p per card and in that first year 1,500 cards were delivered. There have been may designs of stamp over the years all designed by Group members whilst the number of cards delivered peaked to over 10,000 for many years. Increased costs has seen the price of stamps rise to 40p and since 2016 Radstock, Peasedown St John and Paulton Scout Groups have joined the service with a hope to delivering all the local Christmas Cards. Many thanks in advance for your support of your local Scout Group.
