We have been taking more and more customers out for Demo’s over the last 6 months which makes us happy and makes our customers happy, knowing they are purchasing the right boat for them.
This has inspired us to make use of the lovely Spring / Summer lighter evenings and put on weekly demo nights, on our local canal at Purton. This will give potential new customers the option to test out a few different boats to see what they feel most comfortable in. We also thought this would be a good way of raising a little bit of money for charity so we will be charging a £5.00 fee for adults which will go towards purchasing a Defibrillator for the village. These can increase the chances of a person surviving a heart attack by 50% and are something that should be in rural villages where the emergency services cannot attend as quickly as they can in cities and towns.
Dates and Times
We will be there from 6.00pm, on Tuesday evenings starting on the 4th April throughout the Spring into Summer.
