Hi, my name is Carole and I coordinate the orders on behalf of Enstone Oil.
Well the recent weather has had quite an effect on supplies. I contacted 7 companies and only two were able to give me a price, others were far too busy and their waiting list was six weeks in some cases.
One price was 55.95ppl and Cotswold Petroleum came in with 49.95 ppl.
The order has been placed with Cotswold Petroleum and deliveries will commence next Monday, 26 March, but may begin earlier.
When your oil has been delivered, its always helpful to make contact with Cotswold Petroleum for payment.
Any questions, either phone Cotswold Petroleum on 01386 579579 or me.
If you require further information please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 07977 506 209

Enstone Oil provides a service throughout the Parish of Enstone and surrounding villages for the delivery of domestic oil. It is run by villagers with the aim of providing the best price at time of order. This is achieved by ordering in bulk and relies upon villagers placing their orders when the next oil delivery is organised. We cannot guarantee meeting the same price each time but the larger the order the better bargaining power we have so please tell your friends and neighbours what people power can achieve. The chosen Oil Distributor will invoice you directly after delivery.

Although an Oil Syndicate already existed in Enstone, the idea of villagers organising themselves into a large group to give themselves more buying power when ordering oil was brought to the village by Cottsway Housing Association. Cottsway introduced the scheme, which they had pioneered with the folk of Burford with resounding success.
