Residents are being urged to take advantage of the Scout Christmas card postal delivery service which is now under way.

The 4th West Lothian Scout Group will collect, sort and deliver the cards on the weekends of December 10 and 11, and 17 and 18.

Since last Thursday the public have been able to drop off cards destined for addresses in the EH49 area such as Linlithgow, Blackness, Threemiletown, Philpstoun, Bridgend and Whitecross at various collection points in the town for only 25 pence per card - cheaper than a first class stamp which costs 64p.

The last date for posting will be December 17.

The collection points are Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Far From the Madding Crowd, Fair Tradewinds, Wilson’s Newsagents, Walker’s Carpets and Spar in Springfield.

The scouts delivered in excess of 9500 cards last year and are now hoping to smash the 10k barrier.

The group has been training hard in preparation for the massive delivery, posting 2500 Christmas Service Cards for St Ninian’s church in 90 minutes.
