We have a well-established routine of events plus other special events that you can find out about here.

Every autumn we put on an Electric Car Day in the Co-op car Park where you can see the latest in ultra low emissions vehicles and talk to owners of electric cars about the reality of electric driving.  You can also get to ride in some and get a taste of the amazing experience of quiet, smooth  motoring. Electric cars have amazing performance and cost less than a quarter of the cost of a petrol car to run.  They will soon be cheaper to buy than a petrol or diesel car

Cool looks – and this one drives itself..

In the middle of May we hold the famous Stretton Duck Races in association with the National Trust in Stretton’s beautiful Carding Mill Valley.  It’s an exciting and frankly very silly day for the whole family – there are ten races and each race is completely different, with the  result always in doubt until right at the end.  Entries cost 50p per duck so it’s a cheap and cheerful day with prizes for first, second third and last (because it’s not the winning, it’s the taking part..)

We also join in with others to push the need for action to reduce carbon emissions so that the next fifty years are merely uncomfortable rather than catastrophic. We arrange technology fairs, ride electric bikes, engage with our MP and even go on the odd national march.
