Chesterfield
Derbyshire, England

Operated from 1988 onwards by Chesterfield & District Scouts, initially serving an area within about three miles of the City centre. Profits to the Scout Association and local charities. Later expanded to exchange mail with the Sheffield Post (qv) accepting each others stamps and forwarding cards for delivery in each others areas.

The closure of Sheffied Post in 2001 due to lack of participation has meant that Chesterfield has also ceased as a high proportion of post was involved in the exchange with Sheffield.

Chesterfield District is part of the Scout County of Derbyshire.
