Gas bottle contract

Looking to take out a gas bottle contract down in south Essex - anyone know who does the cheapest contracts at present?

Our local nursery does their own bottles for £75 (£40 contract £35 refill)

    Around our way, Calor have imposed various limitations due to supply & demand (when I last asked). 

    I kept an eye on Facebook marketplace, hoping to pick up an empty which I could get filled. I eventually got lucky, picking up a *full* 13kg Calor patio gas cylinder for £35. 

    Central Beds, 2.02kWp (9 x 225W) south facing with some morning shade, installed 2011 (£7.16/Wp). Tigo monitoring/optimisers on all panels, Growatt MIC 2000 TL-X Inverter and Solar iBoost installed 2022. (4 x 415W + 6 x 405W garden experiment connected to SunSynk 3.6 hybrid inverter & 2 x 5.3kWh SynSynk batteries) (4 x 405W panels queued to go somewhere)
