Please make chqs out to, Mrs. S.J Emm,  

 Address is; Sea Breeze, 6 Lym Close, Lyme Regis, Dorset, DT7 3DE.

Please ensure your subs up to date.

January oil order, delivered within 15 working days, longer than usual due to high demand priced at 35.5p ltr plus the 5 %. Vat, during a remarkably busy period.   

Keep your oil tank filled, regularly to keep costs down.

Please pass on how COGS work to neighbours & friends, so that they too may benefit, also reducing heavy road traffic on our narrow roads, a way we can take part in keeping rural peace & a better environment.

Oil delivery usually within 10 working days, (Christmas & exceptional circumstances maybe longer).

Legal minimum oil order is 500 ltrs

Most oil companies provide a ‘topup’ over & above your order, just inform them when you receive notification from me on the Monday.

Everyone pays the same price thru COGS, almost always 8p ltr cheaper than by oneself  

Oil prices are priced on the day, each day, so that prices are ever changing daily.

All oil companies work differently so we have to go with the flow on how one pays, either beforehand or upon delivery slip/invoice etc, however pay within the stipulated time, otherwise charges are imposed.  Ensure that all addresses, tell nos. emails, etc.  are correct, please confirm with the oil company. Ensure you are contactable on the Monday afternoons following the oil order date to receive the email/ phone information to proceed. 

Please check that your oil tanks & bases are fit for purpose & that you have a suitable way of checking how much oil you have. A Watchman Sonic or its upgrade bought from Mole Valley or similar is good, however, the dipstick method is the best back up scenario.

2021 dates can be seen in future page of the Chimes for all COGS 2021/2022 Dates.
