Easter Trail this weekend

Thanks to everyone who has contacted me about decorating your houses and gardens for the Easter weekend. Just to confirm this is an informal hunt – there isn’t a map and you don’t have to let me know, people can decorate at will and then wander around as they wish and try and spot some of the Easter themed creations.

I’ve already spied a few so thank you, hopefully they will bring a smile to lots of faces and I know some children very eager to go find them all (as long as I take some chocolate and treats along with us!).

Any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact me – lucywigley@googlemail.com – and hopefully we will see some of you hunting over the weekend.

Happy Easter

Lucy M

Oil Price Down a Little

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

The unfortunate tanker mishap in the Suez Canal blocking tanker traffic is being overshadowed by yet another wave of coronavirus-inspired lockdowns. Brent Crude remains around $63 a barrel.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note, the delivery times on this order are estimated and subject to weather and supply conditions. Please also allow for the extra bank holiday days around Easter.

TIP: Upgrade your fuel and benefit from member discounts – We have a selection of Additives available in The Oil-Club Store with discounted Club prices for our members only, at lower than regular retail prices. It is a good idea to upgrade your fuel to Premium fuel with a bottle of Exocet Additive which will lower carbon emissions, stabilise fuel, clean injectors, inhibit sludge formation in your tank, and improve overall fuel performance and efficiency.
If you have an AGA or range cooker (with a wick), then please ensure you order the Cooker Additive. To find out more about Additives and Club discounts, please login and visit our Club Store.
If you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable, especially as delivery times will be slightly longer due to the Easter bank holiday days.

Rate:  £0.3750 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Wakes 2021

This is just a quick note to say Wakes this year falls on Saturday 26th June. As you can see this is very close to the government date!! The Carnival Committee, Pub, Legion and Odd Fellows are all starting to plan what we can and can’t do. Obviously this will all depend on the rules set by the government but as soon as we know more we will let you know.

If anyone is willing to join the very small Carnival Committee, to help where you can, please email lucywigley@googlemail.com

Alternatively just drop me an email with any good ideas you have.
Thanks and keep your fingers crossed!

Oil Price Coming Down?

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

Oil prices plummeted by 10 percent this week as a rise in the U.S. dollar, the rising U.S. crude inventories, and fresh setbacks in vaccination programs in Europe weighed on the market. Brent Crude is now $63 a barrel.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note, the delivery times on this order are estimated and subject to weather and supply conditions.

TIP: Avoid water causing issues in your tank – As winter draws to a close it is a good idea to put a Water Scavenger into your tank to absorb and remove any water that may have entered your tank during the wetter months, to prevent water being sucked into your system and causing issues. It is simple to use, just fix the cord to the tank and drop in the Scavenger and its water absorbing polymers will absorb only water and no oil. Once the Scavenger is full just remove from tank and dispose of.

Or if you would like to test for the presence of water first, you can purchase a Water Test Kit. For more information please visit The Club Store.

If you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.3885 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

For all those who have been doing their best to keep the wild bird population and other people’s poultry flocks safe by restricting their own birds, today’s government announcement comes as very welcome news:

19 March 2021: The risk of avian influenza to both wild and kept birds has reduced to ‘medium’. The Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) requiring enhanced biosecurity will remain in force but Wednesday 31 March 2021 will be the last day poultry and other captive birds will need to be housed (housing restrictions end 23:59 31 March 2021). Bird gatherings are still prohibited. High standards of biosecurity remain essential as infection may still be present in the environment.

Thank You

I’d like to thank all those people who have stopped by 6 Chestnut Cottages to wave to Alan.

It really cheers him up

I can’t thank you all enough, please continue, as the days get warmer we are hoping he will be able to sit out and chat to passers by. This is our goal, he misses socialising like so many others.

Thank you so much it really means a lot

The cricket pavilion on Parsons Croft currently has very little use. But unfortunately it is becoming increasingly expensive to maintain.

This problem has been further compounded by a recent inspection which has confirmed the presence of asbestos cement wall panelling in its construction.

The Parish Council must decide what action to take. The link below will take you to a page of the Parish Council’s website which provides more information and an opportunity to answer a few simple questions about your own views on what should be done. 

Please help the Parish Council to understand your views when dealing with this issue.

Oil Price Up

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

Brent Crude is up another $2 dollars to $68 a barrel today on news that OPEC+ will maintain production cuts into April, and the larger than expect inventory draws in the US as a result of the cold weather during February.
Delivery times are 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: Get your order in before Easter – With the Easter holidays now only 4 weeks away, the demand (and therefore possibly the cost) for oil will be rising again, plus the bank holiday days over the long Easter weekend will increase delivery times if ordered too close to Easter. 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:  £0.3845 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])
