Oil Syndicate


There is  an Oil Order submitted on the 1st of every month. This is in conjunction with the Felinfach Syndicate. You can still place your order through Malcolm Sumner on 07967-116632 or by email 

Please read terms and conditions below.


Since 2005 Cymuned Pennant, and previously the community group Llais Pennant, have been collating domestic heating oil orders to obtain discounts on the price per litre. As a result the numbers of people taking advantage of the savings have increased. This has then led to further savings as the quantity of oil ordered has increased

Orders have been taken from persons outside of the Village. This has included Cross Inn, Ciliau Aeron, Bethania, Penwch, Aberaeron, Newquay.

We have recently been approached by Ciliau Aeron, and have approached Cilcennin, to amalgamate our purchasing power. The larger the order that we can provide the bigger the discount.


If you know of anyone who would like to save money on their home heating bills tell them to join us. There is no charge or membership fee.

As we all know the price of oil fluctuates greatly and has far more market forces acting upon them than other domestic fuel supplies. Also there is no regulatory bodies protecting the consumer as with mains electricity and gas. The price for oil is quoted as it stands on the day the order is placed.



Don't worry if you ever miss one of the Pennant Syndicate's orders. You can still make an order. Pass your details and requirements as usual and they will be passed to one of the surrounding 'Oil Syndicates' to place an order to save you some money.



Generally domestic heating oil is ordered on three occasions through the year: -
At the end of August or beginning of September;
During January if a top up is required; and
At the end of March or beginning of April.

All that is required is for the following information to be provided: -

Your full Name;
Full Address - including post code;
Telephone number;
Quantity of oil required; and
any special requirements or access issues (small lorry only, etc)

There will is a minimum order of 500litres.

We are also able to order red diesel for farmers/authorised users
