red postal elastic bands needed (any posties out there that can help)?

Hi Everyone, I need some help, a friend of my mine who runs a local scouting group and has asked me to see if anyone has any red postal elastic bands.

He uses them for wrapping around plastic bags to keep everything waterproof for all the kids that go camping etc. (such as maps, tools, phones and other electrical items)

Apparently these are far better than the standard bands that you get from stationary shops as they last longer and dont break easy as he's used them in the past.

Just a kind request really to see if anyone who's a postie has a stash of them or anything.

Need a couple of hundred.

Willing to pay a quid or two towards for sending in post etc.

Cheers

Peter

lol no chance, they come at what time they want nowadays, plus he might think it's a strange request

Suggest they get the scouts walking round after the postmen and picking the wretched things up - they seem to follow our postie like Hansel and Gretel's trail!!!!!! Much be terribly un-environmentally friendly!

If I see our postie this week , I'll ask him....

Yep, just look on the floor.
I don't know why our council don't fine The Royal Mail for littering.
It's disgusting the amount that are about.
And as Tah-M has said, it's not going to be doing the environment any good.

Cheers Tah-M, that would be excellent.

sorry just to add that the scouts use them and take them home to be re-used for next time, if they become damaged they give them to the scout master and he disposes of them, they don't get thrown into the wild or anything, he's very strict with things like that.

lol I remembered there was another thread while back about elastic bands and it was a major fail!!

your better off asking the postie if you see him, i get asked all the time and give a handfull but to be honest the yellow bands you get in the stores are much better quality, i dont know if its the dye or whatever they use in the red bands but the dont last very long

I was at my mum's and asked if she had an elastic band and she suddenly ran up the road and back again and gave me a couple. i said what was that all about, she said postmen always drop them at corners i knew there'd be some!

Have a look on the corner.
