I seem to remember seeing in my last Lewes News.(Which I can't find....)
something about a cheaper Chistmas card delivery service in Lewes.
I can't remember where you take them to. Can anyone enlighten me please??

There is a local delivery for 10p per card which you can be taken to Wycherleys, Richards Butchers and other places which I have forgotten.

Until Wednesday 17th: Local Christmas Post
Commercial Square Bonfire Societys Christmas post is something of a Lewes institution. The fundraising local postal service was started over 20 years ago by the Lewes Scouts and has been running continuously ever since. When the Scout group folded, CSBS took over the service, which has built up by word of mouth and last year delivered a staggering 7,500 cards. Cards of any size can be dropped off at collection points around town where they will be delivered to Lewes and Kingston. Organiser Tony Duc says: Were a good deal really. We charge 15p per card which is jolly near half the second class rate - and unlike Royal Mail we dont worry about the size. He adds that Lewes Pounds are more than welcome as a form of payment this year.
Cards can be dropped at the following businesses: Richards the Butchers, Wycherly Estate Agents, Spectrum Eye Care in Cliffe, Laportes and Winterbourne Stores.
There are also house collection points around town at:
Landport - 30 Evelyn Road; Wallands- 107 Valence Road, 23 Gundreda Road;
Nevill - 20 North Way; Malling - 5 Malling Hill, 60 Old Malling Way; Southover- 40 Southover High Street; Kingston.- 12 St Pancras Green; Pells- 21 St Johns Street.

Sorry Zola, I meant to say 15p not 10p!

I suppose the people who support this undercutting of Royal Mail are also the people who complain about local post offices being shut down. What was it they said about private postal companies undercutting Royal Mail by taking only the easy work?

Oh for goodness sake! This was originally set up for the Scouts to do a little fund raising - many of those went on to become members of Commercial Square and when the Scouts folded CSBS took it on. As I deliver for them in the old peoples homes I know how many old people use this invaluable service and how much appreciated it is as they would not be able to walk around Lewes posting their cards or pay the Royal Mail charges to stay in contact with so many friends. Stop sniping at a local service which is purely for the local people. There is only one delivery not several over the christmas period. If you think that I would send all my christmas cards by Royal Mail then you are greatly mistaken - I would get in my car and drive all over Lewes - not very environmentally friendly - unlike the christmas card delivery.

Thanks for the info. I thought the closing date was 10th so I'll be able to use the service
