BB festive post bigger than ever

CARNOUSTIE Company Boys’ Brigade will be expanding their Christmas post service this year.

The 1st Carnoustie Company operate 23 locations in the town and this year will also operate a letter drop at the Asda in Arbroath’s Westway Retail Park.

The service will begin operation on December 1 and is 20p per card with deliveries covering Carnoustie, Barry and Muirdrum.

In addition, anyone in the Carnoustie area who is unable to reach one of the postboxes should contact Mary Bushnell on 01241 854499 to arrange for a collection.

Company Captain Neil Russell said: “Owning its own hall in Maule Street presents the Company with major financial challenges.

“It endeavours to provide the boys with a varied and interesting programme against a backdrop of ever increasing utility bills, therefore it is very much indebted to the people of the local community for their ongoing support with the post which is our main fund-raising activity of the year.”

BB post boxes will be placed at the following Carnoustie locations and the final posting day is December 21: Angus Trophies; Barrry Church: the BB Hall; Burrell’s Pharmacy at the health centre; Carnoustie Access Office; Carnoustie Church; Carnoustie Library; Carnoustie Panbride Church; Carnoustie Tyres; the Co-op; Erskine U.F. Church; Fobel DIY; For Carnoustie Charity Shop; Holyrood Church; I&M MacDougall; Inspirations, Kayty’s Salon; McKays Newsagent; Nickel & Dime; Panmure Centre; Robbies Hair Design Salon and St Anne’s Church.
