General Comments by vendor

Members are willing to swap weeks to assist each other with personnel circumstances and once rota is published members are free to swap weeks or sell weeks to other members at a fixed price (2017=£189). This is set at three times the current monthly maintenance payment, so in theory if you are unable to use your weeks one year and sell them to other members it would cover your maintenance payments for that year.

The four maintenance weeks spread throughout the year are used by the engineer (One of the members, although any other members may help if they like) to do any improvements that are needed/ requested. Further maintenance/repairs carried out by Anglo Welsh also utilising these weeks who also look after the cleaning at turnaround.

As you can see Madge is maintained to a high standard with high spec fittings to afford all members a pleasant luxurious time aboard. We are a very friendly group of members who meet yearly for a social get together, in addition to the AGM.

We have also in the past arranged changeover at different locations to enable visits to further reaches of the network.

Flat screen TV with Snipe Satellite Finder (saves getting out of the boat to adjust the aerial or dish and will get a signal when you would not think it).

Has Gas Central Heating with recently replaced Boiler.

Recently refurbished Bathroom & Shower.

Recently refurbished Kitchen, new Cooker, 12 volt Fridge and Worktops.

Recently replaced windows with two Double Glazed Windows to kitchen area.

Any mechanical or other problems are reported to the committee and sorted out by Anglo Welsh at Great Haywood and has worked out very well in the past.

We also have RCR Gold Membership for the unplanned breakdown.

Viewings can be arranged with members by appointment.
