The insurance cover provided by the Association is renewed annually. Copies of the Certificate are posted on all site noticeboards. This provides cover for members engaged in working parties (quasi-employees), and hence must be displayed at all workplaces.
Good news is the cover has been extended immediately to include family members and anyone else working on the plot with the principal plotholder’s permission. [The principal plotholder is the name on the Tenancy Agreement, and is the only one entitled to membership benefits of the National Allotments Association]. There is no age restriction regarding cover for a member’s children, but they must be supervised and assisting on the member’s plot.
This change to the cover has been implemented as a result of the discussion at the 2017 AGM, and removes the need for a supplementary charge as outlined in the proposed rents structure from 1 October 2017.
