The 29th Ormskirk (Burscough) Scout Group is once again running its Christmas postal service for the village. They will be selling stamps in Tesco, Burscough on the weekend of 26th & 27th November. Customers will be able to purchase stamps from the local shops and then, when convenient to themselves, post their cards/mail in the special scout postboxes from Monday 28th November.
There will be a collection on each Friday in December from the special postboxes, then the mail is sorted into areas and then deliveries are made to anywhere in the Burscough area by the Scouts themselves on Saturdays 3rd, 10th & 17th December.
The stamps cost 30p each and can be purchased from Perfection on Mill Lane, Synergy Dental practice on Lord Street, Halo Cards, Fishlock Chemist, KC Computers, Graham’s Grocers and Profile Hair all in Burscough Village. These shops will also hold the special postboxes with times of collection and delivery. Postboxes will also be in Neil Heyes Opticians, St. John’s Church on School Lane and Tesco Customer Services.
