Does anyone else think that the club is charging excessive fees for caravan storage and that a 11% increase in storage fees for next year is EXCESSIVE IN THE EXTREME after a year when people,at best received 80% of their pay?
I called to ask for the reason for this and was told the increase was inflationary! What a crock; inflation is 1.7%.
I store in Ashwell in Hertfordshire and after the price hike last year, many caravans were taken off storage. The temporary warden told us that they had 'hemorrhaged' storage pitch members, so why another incredulous increase? It's not as if the storage compound is on decent ground either!
This is meant to be a club, run for the benefit of the members, but how they expect members to keep finding extra money when they are on fixed pension incomes is a mystery to me!
To top it all, the latest magazine has the AGM notes in it, which proudly states the £m's that the club has made in the last year.
There are NO grounds for the pure greed of these latest price hikes.
so after 15 years of storing on a club storage compound, I am going to take my caravan off storage and hope other members following suit if they are able to.
I will no longer use club sites either as they cost for these has become prohibitive while the pitches have got smaller.
