Christmas Post

We regret that due to the pandemic we will be unable to run Scout Post in 2020.

With the current uncertainty we feel it would be unfair to run our usual Christmas Card delivery service, our priority is looking after the health of all our members.

We always try and deliver every card that we can and do not want to run the risk of being unable to complete deliveries if circumstances change during December.

We plan to be back and offering our usual service in 2021.

In the meantime, if you wish to donate to 12th Swindon Scouts in Old Town to support our work with young people, you can do so here.

Stay safe and have a Merry Christmas.

Thank you for your continued support of the Scouts in Swindon.

Every Christmas, Scouts throughout Swindon deliver Christmas cards to tens of thousands of homes. We’ve been doing it every year since 1983.

Here’s how it works…

You can also purchase stamps at a number of shops in Swindon.

All the proceeds of stamps sold here will be shared between the 12th Swindon (Old Town) Air Scout Group and other scout groups throughout Swindon.

Post in a special Scout Post box by 11 December…

These special post boxes are mainly green, and can be found in shops and libraries throughout Swindon.
