Montrose resident receives a free heating oil delivery

A lucky Montrose resident is enjoying the warm glow of victory after winning 500 litres of heating oil from Rix Petroleum.

Eagle-eyed Margaret Greig’s won the fuel, worth around £300, after spotting a competition we ran in conjunction with her local newspaper, the Montrose Review.

As her tank was well stocked when her name was pulled from the hat, a delighted Margaret asked if she could take delivery of her prize later in the year.

Delivery of the heating oil took place last week when we despatched a delivery driver from our Meridian Street depot to ensure she was topped up and would be ready for anything the Scottish weather could throw at her.

Ian McGregor, director of Rix Petroleum (Scotland) Ltd, said it was a delight to deliver the free fuel to Margaret.

He said: “Although spring has come, the evenings still hold that chill in the air, and there have been the odd snow flurries despite the sunshine.

“Every time we meet winners of our heating oil competitions they are always so happy to have won, this gives us a real buzz too. Giving away 500 litres really helps people with their annual fuel bills so it is our way of giving a little bit back.”
