About me

Hello! I am setting up Green Revolutions with the help of four other Directors. A couple of years ago, I heard about car clubs and wanted to join one... but there wasn't one here in Stirchley. Last year I decided to leave my council job of 20 years and start one up myself. Over the past 12 months, I've learned about running a business and done loads of research into car clubs, cars, and Stirchley. I know that there are a lot of us out there (who want to give up a car and join a car club) and can't wait to get things started!  Sandra Green
