by | 13 November 2019 | Children's Group, Notice, Retford

It is getting a lot like Christmas. Retford Area Scout Christmas Post stamps will go on sale on Saturday 23rd November and the final collections will be on Saturday 14th December. Each stamp will cost you 35p each, irrelevant to the size of your card. 7th Retford will also have a stall on the Retford Christmas Market on Sunday 1st December and will have stamps available to purchase.
