Christmas Scout Post

Christmas Scout Post

Christmas is coming! Wenvoe Scout Group are once again taking part in the Cardiff and Vale Scout Post. The stamps, are now available at 30p each. Please buy your stamps locally, this helps support the 1st Wenvoe Scout Group. See the advert below for local stamp availability, post box locations and the areas covered by the Scout Christmas mail service.

The last day for posting this year is

Monday 2nd December.


The Scout Post requires adult support to carry out the majority of work involved. Each evening of the sorting week we need people to help sort cards into the different local areas. Our sorting office is set up in the Community Centre leisure room. We also require somebody to go to Llandaff each evening to exchange the sorted mail with the other participating scout groups and collect the mail for the Wenvoe area. By the end of the week with all our local mail sorted into roads we require deliverers. We are responsible for mail in Wenvoe, Brooklands area, Twyn-yr-Odyn, St Lythans, Dyffryn and The Downs. It is at this stage the whole family can lend a hand with a short walk in the area. Maps are available.

We will be sorting at the Community Centre at the following dates and times

Saturday 30th Nov. @ 7.00pm

Sunday 1st Dec @ 7.00pm

Monday 2nd Dec @ 7.00pm

Tuesday 3rd Dec @ 7.00pm

Wednesday 4th Dec. @ 7.45pm

Mail exchange starts on Saturday 30th November and continues until Wednesday 4th December. Delivery of the mail starts on Saturday 7th December.

If you would like to lend a hand with any of the activities involved please contact Martin Williams 20593345 or e-mail, Ian Moody 20594573 or Jane Fenton-May 20593221 or any leader connected with the scout group. Those who have assisted in the past have found it an enjoyable experience.
