Our work in the Community

Electric Vehicle Charge Point in the Lion Meadow car park
We arranged the installation of an Electric Vehicle Charge Point in the Lion Meadow Car Park in partnership with Midlands Cooperative, Shropshire Council and Church Stretton Council. This encourages visitors to Church Stretton in their electric vehicles, secure in the knowledge that they will be able continue their journeys, and encourages sustainable tourism. To date, the charge point has been used nearly 500 times and has saved over 2.5 tonnes of CO2. We continue to support the development of further charge points elsewhere.
Electric Car Shows
Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 12.34.25We have held a series of Electric Car Shows in Church Stretton. This encourages the take up of these low emission vehicles. We have provided free demonstration rides to those attending and the take up of electric vehicles in Church Stretton has been encouraging. We encourage all forms of low carbon transport-walking, cycling and public transport. We will consider whether to develop car sharing schemes to further reduce car use which is one of the major sources of carbon emissions especially in a rural area like ours.Find out more about our next Electric Vehicle Day
