Community group offers cheaper oil

First published in News

A countryside community group is encouraging villagers with oil heating systems to sign up to its bulk-buying scheme.

Oxfordshire Rural Community Council charity has said it has so far saved members between £50 and £70 on 1,000 litres of oil in a matter of months.

To save money, villagers have been paying an annual £24 to the group, which then uses its larger buying power to negotiate lower prices with oil providers in Oxfordshire.

Orders for fuel are placed monthly and delivered to homes.

That has in some cases resulted in savings of up to £150, the group said.
