Heating Oil Co-operative
I have recently heard of a local co-operative for purchasing heating oil, organised by Lanie Allen.

She sends out an email at the end of each month asking how much you need, with a minimum delivery of 500 litres, and then phones around to get the best price on a bulk order more than 20,000 litres. She then advises you of the delivery date and you pay the supplier direct on delivery or by postal invoice within one week.

She charges £10 per annum to cover her telephone costs etc. It seems very good value since you can get a good price on deliveries as small as 500 litres – I could see savings of around £100 a year being quite possible.

If you would like to join her co-operative or find out more details, please contact her at If you don’t have access to email, you can let me know on 250904.
