I made a start on the Scouts Xmas posts a good few years back, inspired by Wirral Scouts selling their issue for the year beyond the tills at a local garden centre. I backed out after obtaining a number of sets. The true scale of these soon became apparent, especially those from previous years. Not only were there so many issues, but a good few numbered twn stamps per year. I am by nature a completist, so even with sets being relatively inexpensive I could end up shelling out a small fortune. Not only on stamps, but also on albums and stockbooks. I would probably end up spending 12 months chasing all the previous year's issues. Some came in se-tenant strips wider than an album of stockbook which made them a nuisance to display. I have probably posted images of some of mine way way back.

I really enjoy looking out for Scout post stamps, I know I will never get most of them but that is the same for all of my stamp collection as I have very limited funds, but who cares it is the fun of the chase.

Nice newspaper clipping!  Adds some good detail.  

Did the Wirral Scouts stamps come to a bitter end following the Royal Mail's Scrooginess?

Not sure if they operated last year, but they were still running their Christmas post in 2017. So the simple answer would be "NO", they carried on delivering their services despite Royal Mail.
