The Scouts are once again offering their special Christmas postal service for 2016 in the Ipswich and Felixstowe areas.
Cost will be only 25p per card (Any Size) – Please put your cards and money together in the special Scout Xmas Post boxes.
Please write the full address with postcode and any special instructions on the envelope clearly.
NOTE: This year, Felixstowe are joining with the Ipswich scheme so cards for the whole area can be posted in any of the special collection boxes by Thursday 8th December 2016. Deliveries will then begin the day after and will all be completed by Christmas Eve.
This service has been provided for 30 years and is now run by eleven scout groups for whom it is a major annual fundraising event, requiring hours of work by the leaders and parents of the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers within each group. Plus, of course, a band of dedicated helpers.
Scout Groups from Ipswich, Claydon, Kesgrave, Martlesham & Grundisburgh and Felixstowe will be delivering cards in and around Ipswich (Postcodes IP1 – IP5) and Kesgrave, Rushmere, Martlesham Heath, Grundisburgh, Gt and Lt Bealings, Playford, Pinewood, Claydon, Gt Blakenham and Barham. For 2016, Felixstowe have officially joined with the Ipswich scheme to provide a link between the towns and covers Felixstowe itself, the Trimley’s, Walton, Kirton and Falkenham.
