Somerset Community Oil Scheme

Order through AF Affinity by Wednesday 30th November to ensure delivery by Christmas!

Heating oil prices have dropped by 15% during November, the lowest since early September. We have no indication if these lower prices will continue which makes now a good time to order.

If you would like to place a heating oil order, contact us on 01603 881888 or those with a Direct Debit can place their orders by emailing somersetbuying@af-affinity.co.uk

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE SCHEME FROM AF AFFINITY

Due to the ongoing situation in the Ukraine, Affinity have had to adjust the methods of buying heating oil for our Somerset Community Oil Scheme. They have released the following statement:

IMPORTANT NOTICE

How we process heating oil and diesel orders has changed until further notice. Priority is being applied across the industry to emergency services, the vulnerable, and those who have run out or where possible those likely to run out in the coming weeks.

  • Please note all confirmed orders will be priced on the date of delivery
  • If you place an order, you agree to make payment for the amount stated on the invoice
  • We are no longer running the normal fuel syndicate model but members can use the new process if fuel is required
  • Consider a payment plan to help spread the cost of fuel.

Bulk heating oil buying scheme to save you money

Somerset Community Oil Scheme is a heating oil bulk buying scheme that covers the whole of the county.

We all know there is strength in numbers, so that, together, bulk purchasing will make significant savings as collectively ordering reduces the cost. The scheme is open to individuals, community groups and businesses.

We are hoping the bulk buying scheme will return to normal by early 2023.

How to order

Simply email or call Affinity to place your order.

Members Price

We are working closely with our fuel suppliers to get the best possible prices and delivery time frames for you.

Delivery times are currently between 3 – 5 working days.

In some areas we are able to offer Express delivery options which can include next day delivery. There is no longer a restriction on the amount you wish to order.

The price of oil changes daily and the market is continuing to be volatile.

As a syndicate customer you can place an order with us anytime.
