Chris Seddon at Ty Calch

would just like to give a big thumbs up to Chris at Ty Calch,we arrived there yesterday and Tom launched our boat but unfortunately our trailer which had just been driven 80 miles broke in the middle load bearing area .Devastated I asked if there was anyone there to repair our trailer ,Chris came across and said it was no problem and they would repair the trailer .At this point we thought great we will at least get the boat home but then thought oh my god how much will this cost .We were totally at their mercy with nobody else there to help and we thought this was going to cost an arm and a leg to fix .When we picked up the trailer today at 10.30 am they had fixed it in the pouring rain and put the boat back on the newly repaired trailer .He charged a paltry 35 pounds for this repair .All I can say is in this day and age to come across such an honest and helpful man is a real revelation .Thank you all at ty Calch formerly ronnies

To be fair he is one of life's decent guys. He paid for a photographer to come out on the round Anglesey cruise and ten gave out the cd of photos for a donation to charity. What goes around comes around. If he ever needed anything there's dozens on here who'd rush to his help.......

Maybe we could start "Ribnet member of the year"

Contenders I'm aware of:

Biffer
Willk (!!?!)
