STAMPS will soon go on sale for Otley’s very own Christmas card delivery service.

Run as ever by the Otley Parish Scouts and Guides Parents and Friends Association, the Otley-only service sees Guides and Scouts collecting and delivering cards around town in the run-up to December 25.

The Scouts uses their own collection boxes, set up in shops and other locations around town, and stamps. The stamp price has risen this year, from 25p to 30p, but Mark Owen from the Association says that still represents great value.

He said: “The price of a stamp is still less than half the price of a Royal Mail first class stamp and they will be on sale from the end of November in local shops.

“Please look out for further details of available outlets and the last day for posting in the local press and on posters. And please remember that this service is for Otley only, and not to post cards with the Scout/Guide stamps in the GPO boxes.”
