Broker offers party insurance
8:50am Friday 11th May 2012 in Business
A Falmouth-based insurance broker is to offer special insurance for diamond jubilee street parties next month.
A spokesman for Towergate Insurance said: “Whilst a street party is a great way to bring neighbours and local communities together, organisers need to ensure that proper insurance is in place to provide the right protection and cover for both themselves and the public whilst also complying with local authority regulations.
“Towergate Insurance is able to arrange insurance cover for the Diamond Jubilee Street parties both large and small.
“Depending on the size and type of celebration, cover is available from as little as £51 and can be extended to include protection against cancellation and loss of equipment.”
In August 2010 new guidance was issued by Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, which was expected to open up swathes of the country where street parties have previously been stalled by red tape.
In recent years, such celebrations have been hampered by charges levied by some councils for temporary road closures, events licenses and public liability insurance.
Nick Hatch Managing Director of Towergate Insurance based in Falmouth said, “The risks at most street parties are usually very low. Even so, organisers should take every step to protect themselves and the public. Our Diamond Jubilee Street Party insurance is an easy and affordable solution designed to provide organisers peace of mind and enable them to concentrate on putting on a fantastic and memorable event.”
