An oil club has started in Ballykelly thanks to an initiative involving the Housing Executive and Bryson Energy, who are working in partnership with local community groups.

The club is being managed by Bryson Energy through Apex Housing.

“The Ballykelly Oil Buying Club, funded by the Housing Executive and managed by Bryson Energy, is open to all - Housing Executive tenants, housing association tenants, owner-occupiers and those who privately rent,” said a spokesperson. “It’s free to join and members can expect savings between £15 and £30 on their orders.”

Jennifer McClarey, of Apex Housing, said: “It is a simple premise; the more people buy oil together the more we can reduce the cost. Each month a household can buy as little oil as they need when we put all of the orders together we can agree a better price and pass on the savings to all.”

The Executive’s Energy Conservation Manager, Noel Rice, said the “oil buying club is an excellent way to help a household reduce the cost of oil, budget for more regular smaller deliveries and save. “
