Oil Price

FBF25C80-2C22-4991-8A46-7C20D86EC212
Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Brent Crude is up $3 dollars to $66 a barrel this week as larger than expected demand and disruption to output reduces inventories.
Deliver times 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note, the delivery times on this order are estimated and subject to weather conditions and supply.

TIP: Beat the Easter rush – With the Easter holidays just around the corner, the demand for oil will be rising again. We suggest placing your oil order early enough to allow for any delays the increase in demand right before Easter may cause.

If you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable. Please do not order as we are unable to expedite deliveries at the moment.

Rate:  £0.3698 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Covid Vaccination

The NHS are now inviting all aged 60 and over to have their COVID vaccinations, just in case some people haven’t seen it. If you haven’t got your NHS number, the site sorts it anyway. It is through NHS, not your doctors surgery, allowing you to book both vaccinations, but the nearest centre is Derby.

Oil Price Higher Again

FBF25C80-2C22-4991-8A46-7C20D86EC212
Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

An increased draw on US oil reserves and reduced production due to the severe winter storms in the US push Brent Crude up to over $63 a barrel this week.
Please note the delivery times on this order are estimated and subject to weather conditions and supply. Therefore, please allow plenty of time for your delivery and do order early to avoid disappointment.

Upgrade your oil with additive – It is a good idea to upgrade your fuel to Premium fuel with a bottle of Exocet Additive (from £14.99 treating 1,000L). Exocet Additives lower carbon emissions, stabilise fuel, clean injectors, breakdown and inhibit sludge formation in your tank, and improve overall fuel performance and efficiency.

We have a selection of Additives available in The Oil-Club Store with discounted Club prices for our members. If you have an AGA or Range cooker (with a wick), then please ensure you order the Cooker Additive.

If you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable. Please do not order as we are unable to expedite deliveries at the moment.

Rate:  £0.3698 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Give a Little Wave

My father, Alan Oldfield, has been ill for several months now, he used to be very active in the village. Id like to cheer his day by asking for people to wave if they pass by.

If you take a walk round Parwich and pass by Chestnut Cottages , give a wave at number 6 to the gentlemen sitting by the window. This is Alan Oldfield, he will be 90 in August and would love to see you wave to say hello. He spends most days looking out the window watching the world go by so please say ‘Hi’ with a wave. It will cheer him up no end.

Thank you , from Janette H his daughter

The AGM for this year has been postponed again. We are unable to make any plans for the future in the present circumstances and as we have had no income this year – Open Gardens had to be cancelled – we are unfortunately unable to make any donations to any village groups. The accounts are available for anyone to see if they contact Jenny Letten, our Treasurer, or Jill Love or Sue Ash. If anyone wishes to pay the £3 subscription for 2021 (discounts for seeds are still available for members) it can be forwarded to any of the above. We are hoping that restrictions will be lifted over the summer and if so we will then plan for future events, notice for which will published on the Blog and village boards.

Oil Price Higher

FBF25C80-2C22-4991-8A46-7C20D86EC212
Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Brent crude has been rising all week to a one year high heading for $60 a barrel. Optimism in Covid vaccine roll outs and draws on oil inventories continuing to be larger than expected are all adding to the upward pressure, with some suggesting prices could rise much further over the coming months.
Please note the delivery times on this order which are estimated. Suppliers are busy and estimated delivery times are 7 to 14 working days from when Club orders close on Monday. Some suppliers are struggling with deliveries due to drivers self-isolating and the snow and ice in certain parts of the country. Therefore, please allow plenty of time for your delivery and do order early to avoid disappointment.

Have you checked your tank? With the cold weather and so many of us working from home, have you made a visual inspection of your oil level? As we have had some members reporting faulty readings from their meters over the last few weeks.
We suggest ordering when you have 6-8 winter weeks worth of oil left, to ensure you do not run out incase of any delivery delays caused by icy conditions, flooded roads or drivers off isolating due to Covid-19. Delivery times in the winter months are all subject to weather and supply conditions and are an estimated delivery time.

If you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable. Please do not order as we are unable to expedite deliveries at the moment.

Rate:  £0.3595 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Thank you all for your amazing support, I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of people wanting to get involved.

We’ve already gathered a whole load of hand creams, lip balms and biscuits, and I’ve placed a large order today with the £200 of monetary donations.

Furthermore, a massive thank you to Adele Bonshor for organising a similar collection in Tissington which will be donated alongside ours

The Parwich collection box will be out through to the end of this week if anyone still wishes to drop in any hand cream or lip balms.
