HEAT’s Electric Vehicle Show – 3rd July 2021

11am-3pm, The Croft, RG17 0JA

Following the success of our electric vehicle virtual zoom event, we are organising an electric vehicle show.

There will be a wide range of vehicles on display, both from manufacturers with brand new models and local owners with their own vehicles.

It will be a chance to ask questions both of the manufacturers and owners about their real life experiences of owning an electric vehicle. 

We need lots of volunteers for this event, in the lead up to it and on the day. If you can help in any way, please contact heat_hungerford@yahoo.com

The event gave an opportunity for people to ask questions to a panel of EV owners about what it is like to own and drive an electric vehicle.
