Updated Facilities for Madam Butterfly

Madam Butterfly has a smart new shower and toilet layout for the 2020 season. Partnered with a new wheeled chair that can be used with the new toilet and shower, it is now very much easier for the less mobile to use both these facilities.

Dawn Ready for New Season

Dawn has emerged from winter maintenance with a smartly-repainted interior. The new white ceiling makes the whole interior seem much lighter and the revarnished wood panels look very smart.

Great job by our dedicated maintenance volunteers.
