EAGER beavers at a Barry sea scout group have been lending Santa a helping hand in ensuring residents celebrate Christmas festivities.

The 1st Barry sea scout group has decorated postboxes for this year's Cardiff & The Vale scout post scheme.

Stamps, available from various outlets in the town, cost 20p and residents should address envelopes with the full postal address in the delivery areas only.

Scouts in Cardiff and the Vale last year sold 60,000 stamps and delivered 110,000 cards.

Last day for posting is Monday, December 3 and deliveries will take place from December 8 until December 16.
