Ridgeway Volkswagen in Newbury came to the rescue of Newbury Sea Cadets donating a new battery for their training boat, ready for relaunch after refurbishment

Newbury Sea Cadets are grateful for the help that Ridgeway Volkswagen of Newbury been kind enough to supply.

After a little refurbishment and a lick of paint, the Sea Cadets boat called The Viking, has been re-launched into Newbury canal. It’s been out of the water since last October but it needed a clean-up and had to have rain water removed from the inside. Due to this water, a new battery was needed of which Ridgeway Volkswagen were kind enough to donate.

The new battery was handed over to Newbury Sea Cadets last Saturday morning with much appreciation and smiles all around, Ridgeway being represented by Chris Pennels and Assistant service manager Peter Wiggins.
