Welcome to Coldingham and St Abbs Fuel Club.
Coldingham and St Abbs Fuel Club is a local buying group for fuel oil set up to negotiate bulk purchase discounts with the fuel companies.
We generally achieve savings of £25 - £35 per 500 litre delivery.
It's free to sign up but you must be a resident in Coldingham or St Abbs as it's the small geographic area that allows the fuel companies to offer discounts. If you are outside this area please check with us first before signing up.
There are a few simple rules as to how the fuel Club works.
Four times a year we send an email for you to order any oil required - minimum 500 litres per delivery. There's no commitment and you only order if you wish to do so.
You can order oil outside the scheme at any time.
Currently we order late January, early April, early August and early November. These dates should allow us to cope with seasonal requirements and may be amended at any time.
1. Fuel Club email sent and you place order online by the closing date.
2. Fuel club agrees price with oil company and sends an email to those who have placed an order. You will be given a closing date and time for payment.
3. You must telephone the oil company to make payment by deadline time and date.
Important: If you have not paid by payment deadline your order will be cancelled. You will have to make independent arrangements for oil delivery and you will not qualify for discounted club price.
4. Oil delivered to delivery address.
Even More Important: You MUST have an email address to subscribe to the Fuel Club - your email address is unique to your delivery address. it's not possible to place more than one order with a single email address. If you submit multiple orders on a single email address they will all automatically delete.
The fuel club acts solely to negotiate the best price on the day order is placed with the chosen oil company. Any contract is between you and the oil company exclusively. There is no contract of any kind between you and the fuel club or anyone involved in the running of the fuel club.
All orders are placed over the internet.
Orders cannot be placed by telephone or email.
Do not email if oil not required.

Then switch to LED Bulbs everywhere that you can.
Generally speaking, you switch a 60w bulb for a 6w LED and a 100w bulb for a 10w LED. Running costs are around 90% less for LED bulbs than conventional or halogen bulbs.
Don't buy cheap imported bulbs, the quality is poor and they will not last.
There's plenty of places selling LED bulbs but the best I've come across for quality, warranty and range are from LED Hut at www.ledhut.co.uk.
