Hello! Thank you for subscribing to the Green Revolutions newsletter: interesting news and useful information to help you get out more AND reduce your car use at the same time...

Green Revolutions starting up soon in Stirchley

We have our first car! For when you want to transport your family, or your shopping, or for longer trips, Green Revolutions have a car for you! We welcome families, so you can move your children – and their stuff – without hassle or expense. We can even provide baby/child seats.
Our first car is a Volkswagen Passat Estate, “Katie”, with plenty of space inside and an efficient Start-Stop engine.
Katie will cost about £5 per hour (works out at 8.5p per minute). You will be able to book her in advance and you won’t have to go looking for her. You’ll be able to keep your car with you for the return journey! If it makes things easier, we can drop her off at your home.
Watch this space for details of how and when you can start driving with a Green conscience.

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
