MARYCULTER residents showed their appreciation to their local postie, Alfie Grant, who has been delivering mail to local homes and businesses for the past 20 years.

Alfie, who has retired, travelled from Dyce to Altens every morning to sort out the mail and then over to Maryculter to do his round of some 50 miles, six days a week. Alfie reckons he has covered over 200,000 miles in the line of duty!

A presentation was made to Alfie at a coffee morning in Maryculter Church Hall recently, attended by many of the local community.
