Mayor Toasts Car Club’s Success as Co-Wheels host stall at Henley Market

Mayor Henley-on-Thames Councillor Sarah Miller will be on the steps of Henley Town Hall on Thursday 12th August at 10am to celebrate Henley Car Club.  One of the Toyota Hybrid cars will be parked on the apron in front of the Town Hall. Co-Wheels (who run the Henley Car Club) will be hosting a pop-up market stall, dispensing information, and answering questions from residents and businesses.

The celebration coincides with one of the Car Club cars moving to its permanent bay on the Reading Road, outside Gibbs and Dandy.  The other car is stationed in the Market Place, behind the Town Hall.

The two car club cars arrived back in April. Since then, membership has grown steadily to reach 27.  The newly stationed Reading Road car means that ‘Pay-as-you-Go’ motoring is now within reach for many more Henley residents.

A spokesperson from Co-Wheels commented ‘The starting pistol might have already fired back in April, but things are moving up a gear. We will be at the Charter Market to answer all your questions – We look forward to seeing you there”

Greener Henley will be leafleting properties within a 10-minute walk of the Reading Road car to alert residents to the many benefits of car club membership.

Benefits of Car Club Membership

Save Money and Hassle - if you own a car that you don’t use frequently: No insurance, servicing, repair, MOT or road rescue costs.  

Avoid Parking Problems – the car club car has its own priority bay when you return from your trip

Help Henley Tackle emissions - All car club cars will be low emission, either hybrid or electric.

Reduce your Carbon Footprint - By sharing the car club cars with other like-minded Henley residents it is estimated that eventually every car club car replaces 9 individually owned cars.
