Started at the beginning of June 2014, Monkstown’s Oil Buying Scheme has continued serving the local community, on a monthly basis, and to date has made total savings to members of over ¬£15,000. Orders are taken from members at the end of each month, a competitive price sought from suppliers and deliveries following usually within a week. Membership of the Oil Scheme currently stands at just under 100. The Scheme has membership fee of ¬£5 per year which caters for the administration of the scheme. The scheme was originally part of a pilot project administrated by Monkstown Community Forum and funded by Newtownabbey and Antrim Borough Councils and PHA.
