Some more good news from Neil Whatmough about the successful progress of this cooperative group.
Membership of the group is now over 140 and in the first three years has ordered 922,000 litres of oil. With savings over ordering independently averaging approx 4p per litre, this is an equivalent saving for the Slaley & Hexham group members of around £40,000 in the first three seasons!
If you know of anyone who would be interested in joining the group – any new neighbours for example? – please do tell them about us. New members are always welcome!
Over the winter, orders are taken up to the second Tuesday of every month for delivery commencing the following week. Just e-mail your order to email@example.com or call Neil Whatmough on 01434 676949
Over the first three years the group has ordered 922,000 litres of heating oil saving our member nearly £40,000 over the three year period, we will order our 1 millionth litre before the end of 2016!
From September to May we order every month with deadline date for orders being the 2nd Tuesday of the month the orders are then usually delivered during the following week. There is a Summer top up order in July and the season starts in earnest again in September
To join this free to you service please email firstname.lastname@example.org and he will contact you for your details, or call 01434 676949 and he will give you details of how the group operates.
Note: The buying group is run on a voluntary basis. It comprises members from South Tynedale but particularly Slaley & Hexhamshire who wish to take advantage of scale economies by negotiating bulk purchasing of heating oil.
The oil company that quotes the most competitive price is awarded the bulk order and is provided with the details and once delivery is effected the company invoices customers direct. The co-ordinator is there to facilitate, and does not get involved with payment.
