2017 collection dates: 2nd December – 16th December
Liphook Scouts has been running a Christmas Card delivery service around Liphook, Bramshott, Conford and Passfield since 1989. Aside from providing a useful service for the local residents, the Liphook Scout Christmas Post raises much needed funds for the upkeep of the group’s HQ and helps fund equipment to allow the 200+ youth members involved in the group undertake exciting activities like canoeing, archery, climbing and camping.
In December 2016 the group delivered nearly 2,000 cards in the local area, raising over £500.
This year (2017) you will find our post boxes located in Gables, Sainsburys, Co-op, RedLoxx Hair Design (previously known as Route 6), Countrywide, Hiscocks, The Passfield Store and The Deers Hut from 2nd to 16th December (last collection: noon). Simply drop your cards with payment (25p a card) into a box and the Scouts will stamp your cards for you and deliver them from Sunday 17th December. Alternatively, you can pre-purchase stamps from Gables.
This year’s stamps have been designed by some of the Cubs.
The delivery area is Liphook, Bramshott, Conford, Passfield and – thanks to a collaboration with our neighbouring Scouts – Fernhurst too.
