Northamptonshire ACRE Oil scheme in Syresham.
The ACRE Oil Buying franchise was launched in October 2011. Using professional negotiators the scheme has been able to enjoy savings for clients averaging £30 per 500 litres order.
The annual membership fee is £20.00 and a minimum order of 500 litres can be made each month by the order deadlines as published.
International fluctuations in oil costs as well as varying quantities of heating oil ordered each month affect the overall prices but as you can see from the tables at http://northantsacre.org.uk/files/2012/05/Bulk-Oil-Order-Price-Graph-AUGUST-2012.pdf, the cost of membership can largely be recouped through a single purchase.
Membership application can be made via www.northantsacre.org.uk or by a Google search for Northants ACRE Oil Scheme.
Ian Draper, Syresham Oil Group Coordinator
Several books have been written giving a detailed history of the village, including Dr Philip Pettit’s ‘Syresham – A Forest Village’
Syresham is advantageously served by good road communications. Northampton, Oxford, Milton Keynes and Banbury are within shopping distance, and it is only a 20 minute drive from two of the UK's main motorways, the M1 and the M40 putting London and Birmingham just over an hour away. The world famous Silverstone race track borders on the Parish boundary and the local towns of Towcester, Buckingham and Brackley all have a good range of shops and businesses close by.
This was an initiative of the Parish Council created on land off the Kingshill lay-by as part of the Parish Action Plan. It is now managed by volunteers and it is hoped that people will continue to use it and enjoy it in all seasons of the year.
NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH AND SMARTWATERThe parish coordinator is Ruth Grovell at the Post Office. Syresham is a Smartwater village. Many residents have already purchased Smartwater to mark their valuables.
If anyone requires further information, please ask Ruth.
The Parish Council Emergency Plan has been updated and details can be seen on the Parish Council notice board on the wall of the Chapel Sunday School in Bell Lane. This plan was brought into action recently when a serious fire occurred at the Green Man.
