Oil Buying Coop

If you would like to buy your oil at a reduced price, you can band together with others to use group buying power. Our nearest such group is in Haydon Bridge and is organised by Steve Ford. Anyone interested in joining needs, in the first instance, to visit the Haydon Bridge Oil Buying Group page on the Haydon Bridge website and sign up through the email link there. The process is simple and should save you a few pounds.
