Orleton is part of the Shropshire RCC Fuel Buying scheme. Your local co-ordinator is Eddie Clanzy-Hodge.
Should you wish to join the scheme, please
visit the scheme's website.
There is a charge of £24 p.a. and membership runs for the full year after joining. This covers the administrative costs of
the Shropshire RCC but you will easily recover this with reduced costs for your heating oil over the year.
The Shropshire RCC take monthly orders from members across Shropshire and get the best bulk price that they can every month.
The prices are normally below the best quoted prices elsewhere and the admin is all sorted out for you.
All you have to do is tell us how much oil you need (minimum of 500 litres) and we will do the rest. Normally, payment is after delivery.
There have been numerous complaints this year about garden bonfires causing problems because the smoke has been enveloping houses.
Read the advice from the Parish Council.
