As a reminder to our policyholders, due to winter approaching we would like to draw your attention to the necessity of keeping weekly written records of meter readings from your supply authority.

Congratulations to the lucky member of Renfrew Golf Club, who in achieving a Hole in One at the club’s nominated hole, recently walked away with a fantastic golf package at The Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club.

The Government have announced that it would be increasing the standard rate of Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) from 9.5% to 10% with effect from the 1st of October 2016 for all new business and renewals.

When it comes to slips and trips winter can throw up numerous considerations. Golf clubs in the eyes of the law will owe duties of care as both employers and occupiers. Those who fall under the umbrella of being owed a duty of care will include employees, contractors, visitors, invitees and in some cases trespassers. At Zurich, slip and trip incidents account for 21% of all liability claims they handle. Injuries can result in anything from minor cuts and bruising to sprains, fractures and in some unfortunate cases fatalities.

How do you protect the golf club and what can be done to reduce your liability exposure?

With the onset of winter comes an increase in the level of risk associated with losses resulting from cold weather such as frozen and burst pipes, storm events, snow loading on roofs and slips and trips from icy and wet surfaces. Golf clubs are not immune from any of these risks and indeed in some cases are at significantly higher risk due to their isolated locations.

Firework and Bonfire Season is nearly upon us! We can now offer Insurance for Firework Event Organisers, which can also cover Bonfires and Beacons.

More great news this time from Wales as another lucky club member nets a cool £5,000. Here’s what Managing Secretary Dai had to say…..
