It’s the scout post

MAYBOLE Scout Group is to carry out its Christmas card delivery service again this year for local deliveries only.

Items will be posted at a cost of only 20p per card.

Boxes will be found at Halifax Bank of Scotland, the Royal Bank of Scotland, the health centre, the rent office and Rosebank.

Parents and friends who can help with the sorting are asked to meet at the scout hall at 7pm on Friday and Saturday, December 9 and 10, and again at 7pm on Friday and Saturday, December 16 and 17.

As Christmas falls on a weekend this year the group realise that those who help have their own festive season preparations.

For this reason they ask everyone who uses the service to note that the last collection date from all boxes will be prior to closing time on Friday, December 16, so post as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

We also ask parents and friends to provide some supervision for the deliveries on Sundays 11 and 18 December, and meet at the scout hall at 10am on these dates as some of the young scouts do not live in the town and may not be familiar with street names and numbers.

The group would like to thank everyone for their support and hope that supporters and their families and friends have a happy Christmas.
