Heating oil

There’s an oil syndicate that serves the parish with the sole aim of saving members money on heating oil.

The syndicate covers Aston Rowant, Chinnor Hill, Christmas Common, Crowell, Kingston Blount, Milton Common, Lewknor, Postcombe and Tetsworth – and further if there’s a need.

It costs nothing to join or be a member of and carries no obligation to buy. It runs in November, January/February (depending on the weather) and June.

To illustrate the savings, for the top up in June – the syndicate rate was 45.5p/ litre plus VAT from Watson. However, just buying 500 litres would have cost between 49.95p/litre plus VAT (Sweetfuels) and 54.5p/litre plus VAT (Barton).

To join the syndicate just email your full postal address, phone number and any special access requirements to . 01844 350440.
