The revival of Scouting in the village also means the revival of the Scouts’ Christmas Post which missed a year in 2010.

Any cards you wish to post to villagers will cost just 20p per card, compared with 36p or 46p through Royal Mail.

The Scouts will also be taking collections for Woodbury, Exton and Budleigh Salterton at a cost of 25p per card.

The Scout post box will be in the Londis by kind permission of Ken and Mary. All cards will be stamped with the Lympstone Scout Post emblem. Last day for posting will be Friday, December 23rd at 12 noon.

All money will go to Scout funds.
