Thanks to all the parents and supporters who brought us their Christmas cards to be recycled.

We collected over 5500 cards which were taken to the collection point at Marks and Spencer.

In partnership with the Woodland Trust, M&S have pledged to plant one tree for every 1000 cards so that means we'll be having 5 new trees.

An agreement has been made with the Council for these to be planted in November in the park, on the riverbank opposite Waitrose.



Getting 2016 off to a wild and windy start at the Vale District Winter Camp

The final numbers are in for Christmas Scoutpost, 2015

Through November and December, our supporting outlets and volunteers sold over 15,500 stamps raising much needed funds which will help us continue to provide a programme of adventure and development to all our Young People..

In addition to this, a small army of volunteers helped to sort and deliver approximately 20,000 Christmas cards in and around Cowbridge and ran a daily delivery / collection service to the CATVOG sorting hub in Cardiff.

For 2016, we're looking for more volunteers, and outlets, to help with selling stamps, sorting cards and delivering. If you have a business or organisation that could host a post box or sell stamps for us, or if you have some free time at the end of the year and could help our team of volunteers, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

We all know that Cubs love the outdoors, and one thing they really love about the outdoors is trees. This year, we're encouraging all our supporters to recycle their Christmas cards and help us support the Woodland Trust.
