Gourdon resident Margaret Hay will be celebrating a cosy winter thanks to Rix Petroleum Ltd and the Mearns Leader.

Mrs Hay was the lucky winner of 500 litres of heating oil worth around £200 from the Rix Petroleum’s Montrose depot in a competition run through the newspaper. She took delivery of the oil earlier this month.

Mrs Hay said: “I do enter competitions, but this is the first time I have won. I was very surprised when they told me. It is a really nice bonus at this time of year because it is chilly and I have the heating on all the time at the moment.”

Ian McGregor, director of Rix Petroleum (Scotland) Ltd said: “It was a great pleasure to deliver to Mrs Hay and I’m delighted she was the lucky and deserving winner. I hope it helps her and her family stay warm until the better weather is upon us.”
