Boats booking in for Middlewich

Boats are now being booked in for the Boat Share Show at Kings Lock, Middlewich CW10 0JJ on  the weekend of 5th & 6th September.


Forget Me Knot, managed by Ownashare,
is one of the first boats to be booked in
for the Middlewich Boat Share Show
on 5th & 6th September.  A 1/12th share
is currently on offer for £4,750
At least 16 boats are expected to be on view -all with shares for sale.

The first to be named are 4 boats managed for their owning syndicates by Ownashare Cruising - Beeston Castle, Farndon, Minuet &  Forget Me Knot.

Richard Parry (centre), CEO of the Canal & River Trust,
is on hand at the Braunston Historic Boat Rally
to see a cheque for £1,000 presented by
boatshare4u.co.uk to the Friends of Raymond
in appreciation of Braunston Marina's generosity
in hosting the Boat Share Show.

This will be the second Autumn Boat Share Show held at Middlewich, giving an opportunity to view a wide range of boats comparable with that offered by the Braunston Boat Share Show in April.  At Braunston this year, 36 extra families decided to join the shared ownership community.  They're now able to go boating for at least three weeks each year on the own boats at a cost comparable with a single week's summer hire.

There's lots of information about shared ownership on this site and we've just added a single page 'Briefing Note' which was prepared to provide a quick summary for interested organisations, the media and prospective new owners.
