What our clients have to say

“After being with my current insurer for almost 22 years it is a big move, changing companies. Shirley from Pound Gates’ nursery support team rang me and had such a nice manner and was so honest, it made me think seriously. There is not a lot of difference in what it cost, but the cover is much more agreeable and practical for a nursery business. I look forward to having a good relationship with our new insurance company.”
