COMMUNITY OIL SYNDICATE
Warwickshire Rural Community Council (WRCC) has launched a Community Oil Syndicate which should be good for individuals, rural communities and the environment. The Warwickshire Community Oil Syndicate will use the model of a local buying syndicate for domestic heating oil, rolled out across the whole county, harnessing the purchasing power of the many rural communities in Warwickshire who are without mains gas. Rural Warwickshire householders, community organisations and businesses will be able to join the syndicate, which brings together orders from across the county which are then added to those of other counties who operate similar buying groups to get the very best price, with an average saving per order of more than £50. Householder Membership of the scheme costs £20 per year, and Members will be able to order as many times as they like during the year, the price being negotiated centrally. The minimum order quantity is 500 litres.
There are environmental benefits too. Delivery tankers guzzle a lot of fuel and the more deliveries they can make in one place the less fuel they use, and the fewer tankers there are on Warwickshire's small country roads the better.
If you think this could be of interest to you or your community get in touch with WRCC by telephone on 01789 472611, by email via firstname.lastname@example.org or contact a member of the Parish Council. Further information can be found at WRCC's website: www.ruralwarwickshire.org.uk/oil
