Christmas Post 2019

Scout Post 2019 – Starts Saturday 30th November

The 89th Reading Scouts are once again providing the highly valued Christmas Post service for the delivery of Christmas Cards to Caversham, Caversham Heights, Emmer Green and Caversham Park Village. We delivered nearly 2,500 Christmas cards last year.


The Scout Christmas Post provides a cheaper service than the Royal Mail and most importantly provides a great service to the local community. The 89th Reading Scouts have been running this service for over 35 years, raising funds for the Scout Group in the process. In the weeks that lead up to Christmas, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Explorers take on the responsible job of delivering Christmas Cards that have been posted in our Scout Posting boxes across the local area.


Our bright red wooden post boxes can be found at a number of locations in Caversham and Emmer Green including: Caversham Library, McColls Newsagents in Emmer Green, Woodcote Way Stores, Co-Op Henley Road, Balmore Park and Emmer Green Surgeries, St Andrew’s, St Barnabas, St John’s, St Peter’s and Gosbrook Road Methodist Churches, and of course the 89th Scout HQ.


You can post your Christmas Cards in these locations from Saturday 30th November and the last posting day will be on Thursday 19th December, guaranteeing delivery in time for Christmas.


We deliver cards across Caversham, Caversham Heights, Caversham Park Village, and Emmer Green communities. Please bear in mind that we are unable to deliver south of Caversham or Reading Bridges, and we don’t go out to Kidmore End, Tokers Green or Sonning Common.


Please use the service yourself for all the Christmas Cards you are sending to people in Caversham and Emmer Green, and let your friends know about the service too. This is a great opportunity to save money – at 30p per card it is half the price of a stamp!!
