The annual Kenilworth Scout Post is set to expand as it returns for 2021.
Organised by 4th Kenilworth Scout Group, the Christmas card delivery service will this year extend to Hill Wootton, Stoneleigh and Ashow.
The post, which dates back to the early 1980's, last year delivered over 9,000 cards to local residents.
Whilst the post is set to expand this year, the cost per card will remain at 25p per card.
A Kenilworth scout spokesperson said: "We are very appreciative of the support and encouragement of Kenilworth Town Council and of the collection points.
"We continue to adapt processes, as we did last year, so that we can operate the service safely for all involved, hence the collection points will not have change available - excess payments are treated as donations."
Collections in Kenilworth will run from late November until Friday, December 17 from:
- Kenilworth Books
- GDT Automobiles
- Steve Crowe Butchers
- Farthing Gallery
- Leyes Lane Pharmacy
- All Saints Church, Leek Wootton
- Stoneleigh Village Club
- Ashow Village Club
There will also be a collection point in Talisman Square on Saturday 4, 11 and 18 December from 9am to 3pm.
Deliveries will take place from Sunday, December 19.
Scout leaders have also requested that anybody using the service address envelopes clearly and bear in mind that the post only delivers locally. Last year the scouts received a letter addressed for Australia!
