The Reepham Car Club, part of the Norfolk Car Club, is celebrating its fourth anniversary and offers readers of Reepham Life the chance to win a £100 prize.
The club has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2009 and continues to grow rapidly. The pay-as-you-go service operates in Reepham, Aylsham and Norwich, and now has 17 cars and nearly 300 members. It is easy to use – simply book online or call and use a smart card to unlock the car and drive away.
People use the car club in many different ways, including for going to sports, work, and meeting up with family and friends. Club member Louisa Dreisin likes using it for work: “The car club is wonderful, convenient, green and helpful,” she says.” I really don’t know how we did without. For a trip of 280 miles, I can save around £100.”
The main benefits are that it reduces transport costs; enables access to facilities, training, education and employment; offers easy use of cars 24/7 at rates between £1.50 and £5.10 an hour; and helps improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions. The Norfolk Car Club also takes care of the insurance, maintenance, servicing and cleaning.
The not-for-profit club receives funding from Norfolk County Council to continue to make a difference to Reepham’s community – environmentally, economically and socially.
