The Allerton Environmental Group has formed a bulk heating oil purchase group, which is linked into the Badgworth Oil Purchase Group. The Badgworth co-ordinator monitors oil prices and organises the group purchase to be made and negotiates the group purchase price.

The Allerton Co-ordinator circulates, by email, to the membership of the Allerton Group, when an order is being planned. Each member then places their order by return email to the Allerton Co-ordinator and once the order is placed will indicate the price and may be able to give an indication of likely delivery period.
