Cotswold District Council will soon be introducing rapid Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCPs) into the Cotswolds for the very first time.
The EVCPs are due to be installed at the Beeches car park in Cirencester and the Old Market Way car park in Moreton-in-Marsh, thanks to funding from the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
This should encourage more local people to adopt a greener mode of travel, as the EVCPs will provide them with the flexibility to travel between locations in the north and south of the district and beyond.
Enthusiasts for the music of the renaissance, apart from the pleasure of playing together, they enjoy introducing people to a range of instruments they may never otherwise have seen, and which sound distinctly different to modern ears.
Between them they have have well over 100 instruments of the period.
Come along to the musical evening at the Corinium Museum and hear some music from the Tudor and Jacobean periods.
Enjoy the music followed by a glass of wine, delicious canapés and chance to wander around the museum. Doors open at 7.15pm. All profits go to Cirencester Housing for Young People (Chyp), helping local young homeless people.
Tickets cost £15 and are available from the Chyp Charity Shop at 20 The Waterloo, Cirencester, or ring 01285 651227 for more details.
The council will be setting aside £500,000 to finance installation work and this will be match funded by Gloucestershire County Council, boosting the total to £1 million.
