Pub has electric car charging points installed

The Junction pub in Rainford is the first pub in Merseyside and Lancashire to provide free electric vehicle (EV) charge points for customers to use.

The two chargers have been housed in 200 litre whiskey barrels located at the rear of the pub.

Landlord, Paul Draper is a member of the facebook group “Northwest EV Owners” and “Family EV Days Out” which advises electric vehicle enthusiasts on new charge point installations as well as giving route tips and general information.

The Junction regularly has automotive meetings in its ample car park ranging from vintage motorbikes, classic cars, Land Rover clubs and even cycle events, so it is now a natural progression to include EVs into the list of Junctions events. The “EV Junction Sunday” will take place at the Junction in Rainford from 1pm on every last Sunday of the month starting in January 2019. EV owners will show off their cars and educate non EV owners on the positive virtues of going electric.
