I always remember the saying ‘Flaming June’ - the herald of summer with endless, balmy days ahead of us....... Currently, June has turned into a damp, cold, unpleasant month and if advise from the met office is correct, looks set to be around for a while;

‘Today there are Yellow warnings for rain in place for north Devon and Somerset and a large area covering much of the Midlands and north east England, both warnings are in place until later this evening. In the south west warning area covering Exmoor 30-40mm of rain is possible with up to 60mm through the day. In the wider area covering the Midlands and up to the Scottish boarders 10-25mm of rain is expected with some areas potentially seeing up to 60mm. There is a chance that continued prolonged rainfall and heavy showers could lead to local flooding and disruption to transport.  The Environment Agency has issued a number of flood warnings and alerts.’

On a more positive note, prices for home heating oil have reduced significantly over the last month, taking them back to the sorts of levels we were experiencing during late summer last year. We always advise our members to buy during the summer when demand is lower and prices are more stable so if you need a top up, please order now - if this poor weather continues, nobody wants to be caught out with an empty tank! Please do remember that if you know somebody less able to check their oil tanks to please, if possible, offer assistance.
