Cardiff & the Vale
South Glamorgan, Wales

Organised by Cardiff Area Scouts.

The Cardiff and the Vale Of Glamorgan Scout Area comprises 8 districts - Barry, Caer, Cardiff South East, Celtic, Penarth and District, Terra Nova, Vale and Wenallt, groups from all except one (Vale) took part in the general postal service before 2002 (see Cardiff listing). From 2002 the stamps were titled "Cardiff & the Vale Scouts" and the service area expanded to include the Vale District previously served by the Cowbridge Post. No cancels used officially but some Groups apply a delivery mark on occasions.
