Orleton History Group.

The Orleton History Group is a relaxed and informal group of people who are interested in finding out more about our local village history - from medieval times (and earlier!) to the present day. We're not academic historians but we do do our own research, under the guidance of professionals such as the staff at Herefordshire Archives service.

If you're interested in getting involved in research, please contact Liz at e.e.mackay@gmail.com, 07484 679671, or drop into the shop.

Here is a the latest newsletter.

Upcoming talks

We have been busy putting together a programme of talks for the next few months. If anyone has any suggestions, or would be willing to deliver, a future talks then please let us know. The talks are all free, donations invited for refreshments:

Oil / LPG Fuel Buying Scheme

Do you want to get cheaper heating oil or LPG?

Orleton is part of the Community Resource Oil Buying Club. Your local co-ordinator is Eddie Clanzy-Hodge.

You can have a look at the Oil Buying Club brochure here Page 1 and Page 2.

Should you wish to join the scheme, please visit the Community Resource website.

There is a charge of £27 p.a. and membership runs for the full year after joining. This covers the administrative costs of the Shropshire RCC but you will easily recover this with reduced costs for your heating oil over the year. The Oil Buying Club takes monthly orders from members across Shropshire and get the best bulk price that they can every month.

The prices are normally below the best quoted prices elsewhere and the admin is all sorted out for you. All you have to do is tell us how much oil you need (minimum of 500 litres) and we will do the rest. Normally, payment is after delivery.

This is a free service supporting people in our community and it is run entirely by local volunteers. If you are in need of help then call 07825 484 289 and there will be someone to help you.
