GUIDES and Brownies in Tavistock are busy sorting through the post for their usual Christmas postal service. They will be delivering the Christmas post earlier this year, and are asking customers to note the deadline of 5pm on Friday, December 14 to ensure their 100% delivery record is met before Christmas Day. The community annually posts more than 7,000 local cards through the Guide system and it is hoped more people this year will take advantage of the service. The special blue stamps, 15p each, are now available from all members of Girlguiding Tavistock and from Cards for Good Causes in the United Reformed Church, Lake Pharmacy, Pillars Newsagents, Superdrug and Tavistock Laundrette. Special blue post-boxes are also located at the same outlets. All roads within Tavistock and Whitchurch are included in the delivery area.
