Kelvedon & Feering
Essex, England

1st Kelvedon Scouts were renamed Kelvedon & Feering Scouts in 1987. As with other East Essex Scout Groups, prior to 1990 there were two different charges depending upon destination, 5p for Kelvedon, Feering & Insworth, 10p to areas outside these three villages. Cards with 10p stamps were passed to the central East Essex sorting office and then onwards to the relevant delivery groups for the destinations concerned.

Kelvedon & Feering Scouts are part of the East Essex District within the Scout County of Essex.
