Herefordshire-based Certainly Wood has been working with a rural residents near Ludlow to help them save money on firewood thanks to a community buy scheme.

Ludlow resident Graham Edwards rallied his local community and got 20 people on board, to make a saving of £1,800. By clubbing together, the group were able to place a large, bulk order on kiln dried logs, which was then divided up between everyone, resulting in huge savings.

Certainly Wood then delivered the logs directly to everyone participating. Managing director and local farmer Nic Snell said: “We’ve run this scheme for a number of years, but it’s only recently that people are realising just what a fantastic way it is to save a lot of money.

“We’ve been producing British kiln dried logs for over 10 years, having pioneered the process of drying firewood to below 20% moisture content. Dry wood performs better, produces greater heat output and gives a much cleaner, longer burn, making it excellent value for money.

“We were so impressed with Graham’s achievement, we invited him and his neighbours to have a tour around Certainly Wood as a ‘thank you’ for all his efforts.”
