Heyford Scout Group – Christmas Card Postal Service 2020

Heyford Scout Group Christmas Card Collection

Heyford Scout Group are still planning to offer a Christmas Card delivery service this year, but organised a little differently due to current restrictions. There will be no door to door collections but we hope to have some post boxes in key village locations, with extra hygiene precautions for handling and posting out the cards.

Further details will be in the December Prattler.

The group intend is to offer a Christmas Card service to the village this year, assuming that the current national coronavirus lockdown is lifted on December 2nd. However if at time of publication the lockdown has been extended we regret we will not be able to go ahead.

If we can proceed the collection will work differently this year.

From 2nd December postboxes will be placed in the One Stop Shop, Heyford Meats, the Foresters and the Olde Sun. There will also be a post box in Bliss School. Last posting date will be 16th December.

If you have cards you would like delivered please post in one of these, in a sealed bag with your payment of 20p per card. All cards will be sorted and then quarantined for at least 48 hours before they are delivered by adults from the group on the weekend 19th/20th December, we will take appropriate hygiene precautions during delivery.

We will keep you updated via the Prattler website and village/Scout Group Facebook pages, if the post boxes appear in their locations that means we are going ahead !

Heyford Scout Group wish all of the village a Happy Christmas.

Latest Update: Heyford Scout Group Christmas Card Collection

Regrettably, following notice of Northamptonshire being placed in Tier 2 until at least Dec 16th, and taking into account advice from our local councillors, Heyford Scout Group have had to cancel our Christmas Card Collection this year. We are sorry for any disappointment this causes, but hope you understand why we have had to make this decision. We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and look forward to being back next year.
