Schemes for Shared Purchasing
Users of oil fired heating may be interested to hear about a scheme currently running in Wardington where users are invited to pool their orders in order to negotiate a better price from suppliers.
It’s not clear if this would be open to Woodford users too but if not a similar scheme might be possible here.
Also, Northamtonshire ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) also run a scheme that covers both oil and LPG purchase.
You can learn more about the Wardington scheme on their village web site here:- http://www.wardington.net
