Society Insurance Information

VERY IMPORTANT

   Our insurance is one offered by the RHS to Affiliated Socities through the NFU.  

   Here is a link to the Frequently Asked Questions from our insurers, this will tell you the basic details of the policy and should answer most of your questions about it. The full policy schedule can be found at www.rhs.org.uk/communitiesinsurance

If you have any questions, please contact Susan Clarke by email: treasurer@thecgs.org.uk

   Although public liability cover is provided, Groups are reminded that they should always exercise reasonable care in organising events so as to avoid the risk of injury or loss.  In particular, it is recommended that a notice of disclaimer of liability should be posted at car parks, particularly in the case of garden visits where cars are parked on private land.

   In the event of an accident or other incident that might result in an insurance claim, Group Officers or other members should not admit liability, but should state that the matter will be referred to the Insurer.  In such circumstances, the Group Secretary or other member should, without delay, contact the insurers Aon Ltd on 0117 948 5080 (Policy number 080X3139841 and, in addition,  report the incident to

Susan Clarke ( treasurer@thecgs.org.uk )

or

Patricia Foster ( chair@thecgs.org.uk )

Please Note:  The insurance does NOT cover damage to or loss of equipment or materials belonging to the Society.  Groups are advised to make their own provision for insurance cover of their audio visual or other equipment if they feel that it is necessary.
