Energy Warwickshire – top up your oil before prices rise!

 With colder months just around the corner now is the time to think about topping up your oil tank and taking advantage of the lower oil prices that have been enjoyed recently.

We are delighted that for the fourth month running we have managed to achieve a per litre price below 50p.  In August our members paid just 49.99pence per litre, saving 4.51 pence per litre against the average.  As a charity that works solely for the benefit of rural communities we are delighted with these results.

If you are reliant on heating oil and would like to join our members in making savings have a look at our dedicated website ( or contact us on 01789 472611.  The syndicate is open to households, community groups and businesses across Warwickshire.

WWI Project is Launched!

Avon Dassett Local History Group’s year-long WWI Project: The Extraordinary and the Everyday: a Year in the Life of a Rural Community 1914-5 was launched with an exhibition at St John the Baptist Church yesterday.

The event was well attended by villagers and some visitors from further afield. The exhibition provided a taster both of the military experiences of some Avon Dassett men and of everyday life in 1914.

Some villagers brought artefacts including letters, medals, postcards and photographs to display and these will be captured digitally during the project and added to the blog to provide information on current residents’ connections with the Great War.

Follow the Project Blog to get regular updates on events in Avon Dassett during this momentous year.

The event also saw the launch of the brand new village website and many positive comments were received regarding the upgrade.
