Raasay Wood Fuel

THE PIT, INVERARISH

Keep Raasay Warm is a project set up to offset fossil fuel usage by encouraging residents to use sustainable local and carbon neutral wood to heat their homes.

All orders are prepared, using local wood, by volunteers and the money raised supports Raasay’s local development trust.

Pop into The Pit on Saturday mornings to find out more or volunteer.

PLACING AN ORDER

Orders can be placed through the Raasay Wood Facebook Page  or by emailing Elizabeth Macleod at  raasaydevelopmenttrust@gmail.com


PRICES

RDT and the wood fuel group have had to make the difficult decision to increase the price of a load of wood.

This is the first increase in price since the enterprise was set up and is primarily due to the increase in the cost of diesel.

As of 1 September 2022,  the costs will be as follows:

Residents/non-commercial £55, kindling £6

Non-residents/commercial £75, kindling £7.50

Kindling and bags of logs are also available from Raasay Community Stores.


PAYMENT

If you wish to pay by cash/cheque, please leave this on your doorstep for Angus to collect or you can post your payment to RDT’s office:

c/o Raasay Community Hall, Inverarish IV40 8PA

Payment can also be made by bank transfer: email Elizabeth at  raasaydevelopmenttrust@gmail.com for the details.
