Don’t forget the Scouts Christmas card collection and delivery service is running again this year. The delivery area covers Kesgrave, Rushmere, Ipswich Borough and Martlesham (i.e. all postcodes IP1 to IP5) together with Felixstowe, The Trimleys and Kirton and some of the surrounding villages including Claydon, Barham, Gt Blakenham, Westerfield, Witnesham, Henley, Tuddenham and Old Martlesham. 

Postboxes have been available from 25 November at many collection points across the area with local ones including Kiln Farm Nursery (Main Road Kesgrave), Little Luxuries (Penzance Road) House of Hair (Edmonton Road), 2nd Stop Charity Shop, Kesgrave Library and Orwell Vets (Hartree Way). 

The cost per card will be 35p and the closing date is Monday 11 December. All profits are shared between the scout groups taking part in the ratio of the number of cards collected and delivered. Further information at: /
