March 27th, 2011

March 16th, 2011

If you use a car infrequently, keep a second car just in case, or have no car at all, then a car club could be just right for you.

Use of a car by the hour when you need it.

Maintenance, Tax and Insurance taken care of.

No parking problems – each club car has a designated parking space.

Look out for our leaflets to register your interest, available at the Swap Shop this Saturday.
