Community Oil Group Information

Steve Ford has now handed over oil ordering responsibilities to 'Bridge' volunteer Ann Rooke.  The e-Mail address for contact remains as fuel@haydon-bridge.co.uk

A big well done Steve for all of your tireless work in providing this community service from its inception.


You will be aware that several Tynedale communities are now running successful oil buying groups and reducing the cost of domestic fuel oil by several pence per litre from this area's suppliers.

If you are interested in making such savings by joining a Haydon Bridge Development Trust organised group or require further information, please forward your contact details by e-mail to fuel@haydon-bridge.co.uk with an indication of your annual consumption if possible.  There is no obligation for you to become a member or make a purchase but this information will assist the organiser, but should you join, you will be invited to order oil 4 times a year.


Message from Ann Rooke

Dear members

A new year and there’s a new co-ordinator for the oil-buying group.  That’s me!  Many thanks to Steve for all his hard work over several years, it’s going to be a hard act to follow. Its run so successfully I’m sticking to the same formula of ordering.  Steve has promised to give me guidance and I hope everything will run smoothly.

I live locally at Chesterwood Park Cottage, Chesterwood and the best way to contact me is via the oil buying email fuel@haydon-bridge.co.uk   My husband, John, is in the library on a Wednesday afternoon if you want to leave a message with him.

New members are very welcome. For new members I will need name, address with postcode, telephone, email address and if there are any special instructions to access their oil tank. If you know someone who doesn’t have access to the internet, please email me and we can arrange to add them to our database

The next order is in February and final date for ordering will be: Tuesday 14th February at 11pm

So as a reminder and for the benefit of any new members this is how it works:


  • The minimum order is 500 litres

  • You will receive 3 emails before the closing date. This is the 2nd Tuesday of the month in February, May, August and November.  

  • I’ll send a ‘message received’ email to each member who places an order at the same time as I enter their details on the spreadsheet.  


  • You will then be notified of the supplier, the price and delivery dates. Problems with the delivery or payments should be directed to the supplier.

Please let me know any change in your contact details or change of delivery details and please encourage others to join. 

I hope that is clear. Any questions, any time - just ask Ann at fuel@haydon-bridge.co.uk
