Winter Fuel Payment Scheme

We are offering to those that need it the most, the opportunity to spread the cost of fuel this winter. As a family owned and run business for 76 years we have seen the adverse effects of spiralling fuel costs and ever more severe winters on our customers. This is our way of giving something back to our community.

If you have received the winter fuel payment in previous years, or receive the State Pension, payments should be made automatically in November or December.  Payments will vary between £100 and £300 depending upon circumstances.

Our Scheme offers our customers the option to pay an amount equivalent to their fuel payment and the opportunity to pay the balance of their account over 3 months to help spread the cost.

Example
500litres of heating oil = £320* price only for example, oil prices change on a daily bases

Heating oil                          £320  

Winter fuel allowance           £200

                                     = £120
                                          

£120 divided by 3 monthly payments = £40 per month to be paid by direct debit.
