Deadline for Scout Group’s Christmas card delivery nears

Anyone wishing to take advantage of the local Scout Group’s annual fund-raising Christmas Card delivery service only has until Wednesday, December 19, to do so.

Cards, which can be posted in collection boxes at Co-operative (Trinity Road), Dennis’s, Hendry’s, Lidl, Newsplus and St Ninian’s Square Newsagents, can be delivered anywhere in Brechin town for a donation of 20 to 30p - cheaper than a second class stamp!

Collection boxes will be available until 2 p.m., on Wednesday, December 19.

Sorting dates for the cards will take place on Thursday, December 13; Monday, December 17; and Wednesday, December 19.

Readers are asked to note that Christmas cards can only be delivered to the town area of Brechin. Cards for Farnell, Trinity, Edzell, Dundee and North Yorkshire unfortunately cannot be posted or delivered.

If you do make a mistake and place these types of cards in the collecting boxes accidentally please contact Elizabeth Kidd on 01356 624210, so that cards can retrieved and returned to you for posting with the Royal Mail.
