When we started the Wood Fuel Co-operative just over a year ago, we felt sure that there would be a demand for highly efficient, affordable wood fuel…but little did we realise just how well received it would be.
Today (26/11/12) we’re standing at 96 members and within the next few days we’re sure we’ll be welcoming our 100th member – with a free bag of Hotmax wood briquettes!*
So why is becoming a Wood Fuel Co-op member such a good idea? It involves loaning the co-operative a fully refundable £99 for the duration of your membership (minimum 1 year). We use our members’ combined financial buying power to negotiate big discounts from top brand name suppliers, so you get your fuel at the best possible prices. You can also store it with us, so you benefit from bulk buying prices but draw it down as and when you want to collect it from our depot in Dumfries. Or, for an extra delivery charge, we will bring it to your door.
Would you believe, the price of many of our fuels is lower now than they were last year! This is because of our members’ contributions, which mean we’re able to buy full lorry loads at a time instead of half loads, saving substantial amounts.
So, some time in the next few days we look forward to welcoming our 100th member! We’d like to let more of the folk of Dumfries and Galloway know about what we’re doing, so if that person is willing, we will take one or two photographs of them receiving a free bag of Hotmax wood briquettes, one of our most popular fuels, so we can use it for publicity purposes.
Will it be you? Or a friend…please pass it on!
*The awarding of a free bag of Hotmax is dependant on the member’s agreement to a photograph being taken for use in local press and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
