Heating Oil

Those with oil-fired boilers will know how much more expensive oil has become over the last few years.  It may be possible, however, to save a little by putting in combined orders for five or six different customers within these villages.  The saving could be in the order of 5p per litre or £50 per 1000 litres.

Nino D’Anna of Careby has been discussing the problem with one of the distribution companies and believes that the scheme will help all, including those who only need 500 litres. It may also be possible to predetermine the delivery date.

Concessionary Bus Pass Scheme Changes

From the Glenside News (February 2011) …

Central Government has decided that from 1st April 2011 responsibility for bus passes will transfer from the District Council to the County Council.

So what does this mean?

There will be no changes to the current system before March 2011.  Current bus passes will still remain valid until their expiry date. Financial constraints will mean some discretionary elements such as taxi-tokens and Rail Card contributions will cease.

The way you apply fo a new bus pass will be different. From April you must apply by post, or alternatively apply in person at City Hall in Lincoln (this applies for all district areas). The option for making applications and renewals on-line is also being developed. These options will give you a choice in how you obtain your pass but please do not apply any earlier than 21 days in advance of the due date.

Application forms and an information leaflet about the Scheme will be available from libraries, local District Council Offices, other key access centres and on-line.
