7 Post Boxes on Gloucester Rd Decorated by Bristol Primary Schools this Christmas

Posted on: 10 Nov 2017

In the month of December, Bristol’s Independent District are presenting 7 Post Boxes to The North Pole. The idea is that 7 local primary schools from the Gloucester Road area will be decorating a festive post box, just in time to send off letters to Santa!


The schools partaking are:

Ashley Down

Sefton Park School PTA

Fairlawn Primary School

Brunel Field School

St Bonaventures RC Primary School

BAM - Dolphin School

Glenfrome Primary School


The post box locations are:


Bishopston Library

7th Sea

Totally Toys


The Parlour

Post Office (opp. Scoopaway)


There will be a special prize for the best post box drawn on the 23rd December. Keep your eyes peeled for these lovely decorative post boxes and don’t forget to post a letter to Santa - here's what you need to do courtesy of The Post Office:


1. Santa has an official address You can make sure your letter gets to Father Christmas by using the official Santa address:

Santa/Father Christmas, Santa's Grotto, Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ
2. The last posting date is 8th December.

Get your card in the post to Santa by Friday 8th December 2017.

3. You’ll need a stamp

You must remember to stick a stamp on your letter or it won’t get to Santa.


Father Christmas is very busy at this time of year so he can’t guarantee that he’ll send a reply, but he will of course do his best if you include your full name and address.
