Bristol was a shade too far!

ON behalf of all members of Girlguiding Tavistock, I would like to thank the local community for again kindly supporting our Christmas Post delivery service. Almost 7,600 cards were sorted and delivered this year, by more than 90 young people and adult leaders involved in the scheme. Every effort was made to maintain the usual comprehensive and accurate service; after all each Guide promises ?to do her best? and being helpful within the community is one of the basic principles of our Movement. However, cards simply addressed to ?Lizzie? or ?Mr and Mrs S, did prove a little difficult! Rainbows, Brownies and guides deliver on foot and regrettably it is not possible to cover outlying villages or isolated dwellings along Devon lanes. There were also some cards addressed to far-flung places such as Bristol ? a bit outside our local community I?m afraid, but we did try to ensure all post reached its destination somehow. Hopefully customers were satisfied with our postal service overall. Girlguiding continues to flourish in this area and members very much appreciate the support of local people. Thank you. Kate Harding Guider THROUGH your pages may Gulworthy Primary School pupils, teachers, parents and friends thank the customers and management of Safeway?s supermarket for their generous support of our carol singing. Over £200 was collected and the children have chosen to pay for goats, chickens and teacher training in developing countries, the balance being used to buy drums for the school. Thanks to the people of Tavistock. Siân Pope Gulworthy School PTFA
