Peace of mind...

blogIt may not be the most glamorous of subjects, but we all need insurance and, in the event of a disaster like a fire or flood, insuring your home can be crucial. But only if you’ve selected the correct cover for your home. Park homes, leisure lodges and static caravans are very different types of properties to bricks-and-mortar dwellings and, subsequently, are better protected by specialist insurance policies.

Fortunately, we’re turning the spotlight on insurance once more in your exciting December issue. As well as an unrivalled A to Z of all the industry’s biggest and best-known brokers, we also delve deeper to bring you details of some great new policies for 2017.

Parksure, for instance, has launched a specialist boiler breakdown plan especially for park homes, called Flamesure Insurance. It matters not if you do not currently insure your home with Parksure; you can still benefit from the peace of mind of knowing your boiler is protected through Flamesure. And the scheme covers mains, Calor, LPG and oil functioning boilers,too! Our insurance compendium also features a selection of expert tips on looking after your property to ensure you’re doing everything you can to keep it safe, extend its longevity and save money. Turn to page 65 and let the fact-finding mission begin!

Away from insurance, we’ve got some lovely community-based stories in your action-packed December issue. A number of brave fellas on a Hampshire park recently bared all for the camera, producing an altogether different sort of 2018 calendar in aid of a prostate cancer charity. We get ‘up close and personal’ with the plucky volunteers on page 28!

North of the border, we visit a residential park near Glasgow that has just benefited from a state-of-the-art new ‘community  hub’. The multi-million pound centre will allow the park’s residents to enjoy even more fun-packed activities and social time together on what is already a friendly and welcoming site. Find out more on page 23.

On the home front, we travel to Northamptonshire to see Tingdene Homes’ fantastic new factory expansion and find out how the extra space and innovative production features will boost the company in the coming years (see page 57).

It’s not just established manufacturers like Tingdene in the news though. We also have information and updates on a wealth of newboys like Red Rose and Aspire.
Enjoy the issue!
