Worlingworth oil heating syndicate
Worlingworth has its very own heating oil purchasing syndicate. This is a simple way for anyone in the village who uses heating oil to buy it as part of a group rather than everyone ordering individually. There are several advantages to this:
- You save money. Heating oil is priced according to volume; the more you order, the cheaper it is per litre so the oil you get through the syndicate will be cheaper per litre than you could achieve yourself. You also save money on your telephone bill as there is no telephoning round during the day looking for a competitive price every time you need oil.
- You will often achieve better terms and conditions than you could on your own. For example, the syndicate is sometimes able to negotiate away charges for using credit cards, or the need for new customers to pay in advance.
The village benefits because there are fewer oil tankers visiting the village, making the roads safer and cutting down on pollution.
The Worlingworth Oil Syndicate is a run by a volunteer who is resident in the village and it is free of charge to be a member. It is only open to residents of Worlingworth.
If you would like to join the syndicate or if you have any questions then please contact James Connelly. Tel: 01728 627952
Eggs and local produce available within the village, news from Worlingworth Hall.
The two egg machines are identical in type and operation. In the hut:
- The machine directly facing you is stocked with
- Green trays & boxes of Large eggs (63 to 72 gms).
- The machine to your left is stocked with
- Grey trays & boxes of Extra Large eggs (in excess of 73 gms) &
- Pink trays & boxes of Medium eggs (53 to 62 gms)
The other development that may interest you is that we have some Red Poll beef available again. Available in freezer packs of either an eighth (approx 20 kg) or a quarter (approx 40 kg) of an animal and made up with:
Ø Joints (medium sized in the eighths and larger in the quarters).
Ø Steaks - fillet, sirloin & rump (in packs of 2 or 4)
Ø Diced beef & stewing steaks etc (in packs of approx 500 gm)
Ø Mince (in packs of approx 500 gm)
Ø Eighth - £10.14 per kg - approx cost £200
Ø Quarter - £9.22 per kg - approx cost £400
The beef is (we believe!) very different from most conventionally produced beef, being from a rare breed, slow grown (nearly 30 months old, giving them three summers at grass), grass fed and hung for up to 28 days. All of which gives a wonderful succulent flavour that is unique, delicious and excellent value for money!
So, don't delay, put your order in now!

We look forward to hearing from you (hopefully with a beef order!).

If you do not know your PIN please contact a member of staff, telephone 01473 263838 or email email@example.com with proof of identification.
Books on mobile libraries can be borrowed for eight weeks. If they are not returned on time an overdue charge is applied. This charge rises for each mobile library visit missed. If, for any reason, the mobile library is unable to call then this will be taken into account when any charge is calculated.
