Started at the beginning of June 2014, Monkstown’s Oil Buying Scheme is now on its fifth order/delivery cycle. To date it has made total savings for those in the scheme to just over ¬£1,000. Orders are taken from members at the end of each month, with deliveries following usually within a week. Membership of the Oil Scheme currently stands at just under 70. The Scheme is free until March 2015, when an administrative charge will be introduced in the form of an annual membership fee. The scheme was part of a pilot project administrated by Monkstown Community Forum and funded by Newtownabbey and Antrim Borough Councils and PHA. For further information please ¬†contact the Scheme Co-ordinator, Norma Johnston by calling 07972253335 (Oil Club number), by emailing villagecentre@btinternet.com, or by ¬†visiting Monkstown Village Centre to collect a membership form.
