CHRISTMAS is fast approaching and in South Marches, Scout Post is the sign that Christmas is just around the corner.

It is a huge effort by the groups at this busy time of year, to raise money to help provide activities and events next year for the young people in Scouting.

There are collection points all round town, details of which can be found on their website

Pictured are Ben and Tom, who have been accepting cards from members of the public, stamping them and sorting them into areas for delivery.
