Smeetham Hall Barn - Bulmer
If you need a venue for a reception or a large party private/business, why not check out Smeetham Hall Barn. The Barn dates from the 16th Century and was mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is set in very idyllic surroundings and as you can see from below, the facilities are magnificent.

Bulmer Brick & Tile KilnThe 'Old' kiln at Bulmer Brick & Tile Co.

Bulmer bricks are made from the finest London Clays, dug from our seams almost continually since Tudor times. All Bulmer bricks are hand made, using traditional methods of making, drying and are fired in a coal burning, down draught kiln. This helps to give the distinctive finish that blends so well with the originals. The process takes time - something to consider at the project planning stage.

Former head of the property-making workshop at the National Theatre, I began to focus exclusively on woodwork more than 30 years ago. As a freelance craftsman I design and make furniture, and undertake commissions for all kinds of woodwork. Having worked for several years with Thomas Goff (1898-1975), who had been at the forefront of the early music revival during the 1950s and 1960s, I extended my own interest in keyboard instruments. I build both single and double-strung clavichords, and have recently developed a Viennese-action piano.

I work on my own, using mainly hand methods with a minimum of machine tools, in my stables-converted workshop in Bulmer Tye on the Essex/Suffolk border. I have a keen interest in traditional and regional furniture techniques and prefer to work with British-grown timbers such as oak, elm, ash, chestnut, sycamore and fruitwoods; whenever possible I use locally-grown woods.

As we know, Oil Companies only supply a minimum of 500 litres. Badger Fuels have revolutionised this by using brand new micro tankers able to deliver smaller quantities of 100, 200 or 300 litres. 
 
Nicholas Wicks (MD) believes the oil user can now buy only what they need when they need it. We have focused our efforts on smaller quantities, catering for smaller budgets and we are also concerned about the threat of thefts, particularly in the more rural locations.

The Foxearth Oil Buying Group has extended the service to include Bulmer. We began in Foxearth in February 2001 and paid 17pence per litre.
Those were the days! 
Since then we have ordered in excess one and a half million litres of heating oil saving around £75000 for members. Not bad for no cost to you!
 
With the current high prices it is even more important to join the group and pay lower prices than you would 
get on single orders. Can you afford not to be a member of the group, especially remembering that it costs nothing to join 
and there are no running costs. 
 
Yes, you've just read it............something for nothing!!
 
To join all you need is to answer yes to the following points:-
1. You live in Borley, Bulmer, Foxearth, Liston or Pentlow
2. You use oil for central heating
3. You have an internet connection (or a kindly 
neighbour so connected who will pass messages for you)
 
You pay for the oil you order at the price negotiated on behalf of members. As shown above this is lower than the price you can get on your own as we order in bulk and get preferential rates.
We now have over one hundred members and are growing! Order as much or as little (minimum 500 litres) as you want, 
as many times as you want throughout the autumn, winter and spring and once in the summer as required.

Oil Order Date for 2016
Month Cut off date to place your order

The group works as follows:-
When you need oil check the order dates (on the right) and e.mail with details of your requirements (min 500 litres). You do not need to 
order each month, only when you need it! I will acknowledge your order by e.mail. If I do not respond within a couple of days I 
probably have not received your order, so please resend.
 
When the cut off date has passed I will contact various suppliers and place our order with the cheapest one. When the order has 
been placed I will e.mail all members (whether you have ordered or not so you can see the way prices are going) with the name of 
the supplier, the delivery date, the agreed price (which is the same for everybody regardless of the quantity you order-provided it is 
at least 500 litres).
That is the end of my involvement. The supplier will contact you 
re payment and delivery. You pay them direct. Most will accept 
debit/credit cards.
 
If you want to join, send an e.mail to Barrie Phillpotts e-mail barrie.phillpotts@outlook.com confirming :-
 
Your wish to become a member
Your full name
Full address including post code
Telephone numbers- landline and mobile
The quantity your tank holds (if known)
The position of the tank (front, back, left side, right side, of house etc)
Your e.mail address (this can be your work if the boss allows it!)
