Xmas Post Vacancies

Scout Post has been established for around 30 years in the Dorchester area and has recently been extended to the Bridport area.
The service operates from the 4th December until the 19th of December every year. In December 2018 the service delivered around 50,000 cards. 

The service is w
ell regarded by the public and the volunteers many of whom have been volunteering for a number of years. Preparatory work for the service begins in October.
