March 2019 PRESS RELEASE:
Free Multi-Page Valuation Report Solves Problem For Trustees
Allied Westminster has teamed up with a RICS surveyor to bring a new solution to the old problem of under-insured Village Halls and vulnerable Trustees!
At present, if Halls are under-insured then not only does it create problems at time of claim, but Village Hall Trustees can become personally liable for the uninsured losses. This problem can be avoided altogether if the Hall is insured for the correct sum, but Trustees are often unable to spend £500-£800 for a full onsite valuation so they can set their sums insured correctly.
Allied Westminster has been tackling this problem for some years and has just launched its new initiative – The Property Rebuild Assessment Report scheme. Under this, Halls can now receive a highly detailed valuation report showing appropriate sums for all assets – main building, outbuildings, tennis courts, car parks, walls, etc – allowing them to set sums insured with great precision.
The report is simple to request and quick to arrive. Better yet, it’s completely FREE to VillageGuard® clients in a 3- or 5-year arrangement with Allied Westminster, and heavily subsidised for those clients who aren’t. It’s even subsidised for Halls that aren’t even clients of VillageGuard, because Allied Westminster has a strong commitment to eradicating this problem for all Village Halls across the country. The report is indemnified for five years by Aviva for clients who use VillageGuard, and completely removes the problem of Trustee vulnerability for under-insured assets.

July 2018 PRESS RELEASE:
Allied Westminster Insurance Services (Allied Westminster) and ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) are delighted to announce we have reached an agreement to provide significant financial support for ACRE’s England-wide information and advice service for village halls over the next three years. This vital advisory service is delivered to village hall committees by the thirty-eight county-based organisations that, together with ACRE, make up the ‘ACRE Network’, and which will now benefit from Allied Westminster’s generous investment.
Designed by Allied Westminster and underwritten by Aviva, VillageGuard® typically provides substantial cost savings because it's the only Village Hall insurance policy underwritten in favour of well-managed village halls in rural locations.
Other insurers will provide insurance for Village Halls but only within a policy that also covers higher-risk buildings which are not Village Halls and which are not in truly rural locations. Such buildings carry higher risks that must be loaded into their premiums. At Allied Westminster we don't believe that you should pay for risks that don't reflect the location of your Village Hall. VillageGuard® excludes these higher-risk buildings, meaning lower premiums for genuine Village Halls in rural locations.
Allied Westminster is a product innovator and a market leader in Village Hall insurance. Our VillageGuard® policy covers assets worth billions of pounds for thousands of Village Halls throughout the UK, and has been a major success since its launch in 2006.
Our Village Halls benefit from a personalised service which allocates a dedicated claims handler to every claim, minimising delay and inconvenience.
