Oil Buying Group and Gas Buying Group

The group started in May 2012, and was operated by Bill Carr for 6 years. It has supplied over 482,000 Litres of heating oil (he thinks we probably exceeded the 1/2 million litres mark but his records are missing for a few months). There are over 50 Members currently, and he has saved members, collectively, in excess of 10,000 (a conservative estimate).

The group is now run by Mike Fossey, after Bill Carr left the district.

To join the buying group or order oil, send an e-mail to Mike Fossey with your home address.

He will send out an e-mail to all those registered during the last week in the month. The last week for our purposes is the last Sunday to Sunday.
You will let Mike know during that time if you want a delivery. The minimum order is 500 litres. Mike will ring round suppliers to get the best deal for delivery the first week of the month.
So far suppliers used have invoiced in the usual manner.
It will benefit everyone if oil is ordered through the oil buying group as the discounts obtained become more significant as the total quantities ordered by all members become greater.

A Gas Buying Group has now also been set up.  It is at present in its early stages.

To join the Gas Buying Group please give you details to:-
