Sadly due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, organisers of the annual Retford Area Scout Christmas Post have been advised by Scout Headquarters that due to the Charity Commission rules, they will be unable to run the Scout Christmas Post this year in Retford.
They are unable to sell the stamps to donors in case we are then put into a local lockdown situation and are unable to deliver the cards. In this case, they would have to, by law, return the money to the donor and they would be unable to do this.
This announcement is unfortunately a change to the more hopeful article in the October edition of Retford Life. They hope to be back next year for 2021.
