3 Directors from D&H did their bit on Sunday to support the last day of the Keep Britain Tidy #GBSpringclean by litter picking in the heat around Doncaster Lakeside.
Finished in time for the football and plenty more bags collected. ANOTHER OF THEIR #100ActsOfKindness.
It is not difficult to spot the difference between the before and after picture.
MEMBERS OF THE D&H TEAM INCLUDING OUR MD TIM AUSTIN JOINED DONCASTER ROTARY ON THE FIRST TWO OF THEIR 3 LITTERPICKS ORGANISED AROUND #GBSPRINGCLEAN.
The fist litter pick was just off Bawtry Road and this was a copse that a previous Director ‘Andrew Goffin’ helped to plant and nurture. These activities all count towards our #100ActsOfKindness
It was hot going in Hexthorpe Park on Saturday 5th June but the hard work of Tim, Andrew, Dianne, Georgia and David helped to collect all sorts of rubbish from this lovely park.
Final weekend litter pick is this Sunday around Lakeside so why not do your bit locally to KEEP BRITAIN TIDY
Dobson and Hodge Ltd are proudly supporting the #doncasterspringclean as part of the 3 weeks #GBSpringclean organised by Keep Britain Tidy.
The first of the litter picks is on Friday afternoon and we will post picture of the rubbish bags collected from Bawtry Road near the Dome.
The copse near to the race course was helped to be planted and tended by an ex-Director of D&H and Doncaster Rotarian, Mr Andrew Goffin and we hope he would be happy with our #100ActsOfKindness efforts.
The fantastic team at D&H spent their Friday lunchtime (14th May) walking far more than a Marathon between them in aid of Cash for Kids.
The good people of Doncaster were very generous as were the friends and family of the Dobson and Hodge staff.
So far to the total collected for this superb cause is £885 and is another of our #100ActsOfKindness in celebration of our centenary.
As the post Covid world opens up, the team will be back on with acts of kindness to make the world a better place.
In October 2015 the then Chancellor George Osbourne announced an intention to “ban whiplash claims” due to perceived consumer harm from their impact on motor insurance premiums. The aim was to de-incentivise whiplash claims, deter fraud, and reduce motor insurance premiums.
These reforms come into force on 31 May 2021 and apply to low value RTA whiplash claims occurring on or after 31 May 2021.
What the changes are:
Qualifying claims will be pursued via a new online portal – the Official Injury Claims portal (OIC). Claimants will access and manage their claim through the OIC and insurers will have 30 days to make a liability decision.
There is no ‘ban’ on RTA whiplash claims but the reforms do ban offers on qualifying whiplash claims without medical evidence. The introduction of tariff damages (for injuries up to 24 months duration) will reduce compensation and the cost of these claims.
There will be two tariffs – one for whiplash only, and a second for whiplash plus “minor psychological injury” (yet to be defined):
A “whiplash injury” has been formally defined. We’ve assessed the applicable scope of the change to be approximately 80% of current RTA injury claims.
The Small Claims Track limit for RTA injury claims will increase from £1,000 to £5,000 (subject to certain exemptions), meaning legal costs are no longer payable on claims up to the value of £5,000, and therefore ought to be less attractive to fraudsters, claimant solicitors and claims management companies.
The Small Claims Track limit for EL/PL injury claims (currently £1,000) won’t change at this time, but Government has indicated it will increase to £1,500 from April 2022.
It is National Apprentice Week! We would like to celebrate the achievement of Emma Mitchell who joined us a year ago and has moved on from the local college apprenticeship scheme to CII (Chartered Insurance Institute) Apprenticeship scheme.
We wish her well and many successful years in her career as an Insurance Broker.
It has been a very challenging year and Emma has been an inspiration to us all. #NAW2021 #Apprenticeships
