Shropshire Car Club

Shropshire Car Club

Shropshire is one of a range of Co-wheels locations across the UK, from city centre to smaller community led and owned car club operations, all focused on satisfying local need.

There are five cars available in Shrewsbury and Ludlow - all are fuel-efficient Fords, of various sizes. Co-wheels members can also use any car in the Co-wheels network across the UK.  Co-wheels Shropshire is managed by a local social enterprise, Shropshire Car Club CIC, with volunteer directors and a supporters' group in each of the two towns where cars are located.

Keep up to date with Co-wheels Shropshire on Facebook and Twitter or sign up to receive the Travel Shropshire newsletter to receive updates about Co-wheels Shropshire by email.  Select 'Eco driving and car clubs'.

They are parked in clearly marked bays.

During times of flooding in Shrewsbury we may need to move the cars around.  Contact Co-wheels by telephone for the latest information on the location of the cars. We'll also try to post news of changes on our Twitter and Facebook feeds.
