Wirral Scout & Guide Charity Christmas Post

The Wirral Scout & Guide Charity Post was founded in 1982 to deliver Christmas cards across the Wirral in support of local charities. It is a co-operative venture between 46 Scout Groups, 5 Guide Disticts and 3 Ranger Units who sell stamps to raise money and deliver Christmas Cards across the Wirral in time for Christmas each year.

Stamps cost 30p each. For information on where to purchase stamps, click here.

Post boxes will re-open on the 18th November 2017. The last day to post your cards with the Wirral Scout & Guide Christmas Post is midday Wednesday 13th December 2017. For information on How to post your Cards, click here.

Play Area

We are currently working with Cheshire West and Chester Council to put in further improvements for the play area, which will take place before the end of March 2018.  The new equipment includes:

  • A tractor and carriage for imaginative play
  • A roundabout
  • A play trail including stepping stones, coloured blobs and a wobble board
  • Road play markings on the path

The current timber balancing unit will be removed to make space for these items.
