RAD runs a community bulk oil buying scheme. We order oil for our members once a month. In January we ordered over 90,000 litres and achieved the price of 31.25 ppl (plus 5% VAT). Next order deadline is 12 noon on 17th February for delivery on or before 6th March. It only costs £20 per year to join.
All courses are currently fully booked. If you would like more information on the training click here or contact Nicky Cooke on 01629 592977 or email
