Harberton Heating Oil Scheme


Q: Do you have oil central heating and are you interested in saving money?
A: Read on...

This community-minded action is organised by Margaret Blight and has been running for some time now. It applies if you live in or within a few miles of Harberton (near Totnes, in South Devon), e.g. some Rattery and Dartington residents are now members.

Margaret has taken advantage of a scheme offered by Watson Petroleum in Totnes whereby she places an order on behalf of a group (any number) of Harberton and nearby residents who all wish / are able to receive a heating oil delivery on the same date. The minimum quantity delivered is normally 500 litres (about 110 gallons).

Because of the large quantity delivered to a small area on the same date, these deliveries are made at a particularly favourable discounted price.

Margaret organises bulk deliveries at regular intervals. If you are interested in joining the scheme, please call her on 01803 863683 for further information (and quote the Harberton Village Website).

A general idea of national average oil prices can be seen in graphical presentations on www.boilerjuice.com/heatingOilPrices.php for various periods ranging from the past 1 week to the past 2 years.
