Fenwick Estate TRA, trip to Bournemouth


Fenwick Estate TRA arranged a coach trip for residents to enjoy a fun-filled day to remember in sunny Bournemouth. They were lucky to experience the delightful sandy beach and a surprise trip to the town centre. Glorious weather was on the menu as the group played beach games. The locals fancied a bit of a beach dance off, so naturally the Fenwick collective did not hesitate to showcase their array of moves to the delight of the watching crowd. Some of the residents took to the town centre to marvel at the historic architecture, completing a relaxing and satisfying experience.

Homeowners & Tenants can make huge savings on contents insurance


It’s a good idea to consider what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for in order to help you make an informed decision on whether you need one.

Cover can be taken out from £1.02 a fortnight for a £4,000 sum insured (available to all homeowners), there’s no excess, no need for special door and window locks, and flexible pay as you go options.
