General comments by vendor

The Teal will be repainted this autumn (2018). The funds are already in the bank. The upholstery is being upgraded this year. Likewise the fridge will be replaced. These improvements are already in the budget for the current year.

Economically run syndicate where work has been carried out over the years as required. New owners can be as involved as much or as little as they wish. 

An annual meeting is held at the Blue Lias PH in Long Itchington in October where everyone has an opportunity to meet other owners and contribute towards decisions made about the Teal.
