t Squire’s Garden Centres

Brand new electric vehicle charging points have been installed at Squire’s Garden Centres in Badshot Lea, Milford, Shepperton and Twickenham, with Long Ditton and Wokingham following soon.

Two-way fast 22kW charging points have been installed at each of these garden centres. Customers can park, charge, then shop or enjoy a drink or meal at Squire’s while they wait. The cost to charge your car is 30p per kW-h.

There are also two existing 3kW charging spaces at Squire’s in Woking which are free to use.

Sarah Squire, chairman of Squire’s, comments: “Our new electric vehicle charging points have been warmly welcomed by customers. We are committed to supporting people to lead more sustainable lives, and one way we can do this is by encouraging the use of more environmentally friendly modes of transport. Look out for more charging points being installed at our other garden centres over the coming year.”
