Somerset Community Oil Scheme

Demand for heating oil has increased, there are also localised supply disruptions and driver numbers have been reduced in some areas.

However, the Affinity office is fully operational and they are continuing to work very closely with the supply chain. They will be in touch if there is any disruption to your order.

We appreciate your understanding during these unprecedented times.

Please email them with any queries regarding the scheme or your order:
