Oil Buying Scheme


The order for January was placed on Thursday 30th December.

The price for the group this month is 51.7p per litre +vat.  Orders placed outside of the group would be 57.9p + vat for a single delivery of 500 litres and 53.9p +vat for 1000 litres.

Simpson’s have asked me to remind all scheme members that the minimum delivery is 500 litres. If orders do not meet this requirement members will not benefit from the group price.

NEXT ORDER: February’s order will be submitted on Friday 28th January, orders can be placed from 20th.
