Fleet Cars 2019: Are Diesels Dead?

Fleet Cars 2019: Are Diesels Dead?

There’s been a huge amount of talk about the future of diesel cars in the UK of late; talk that has implications for everything from the type of fleet cars we drive to the cost of fleet insurance.

Hull: A Renaissance?

I love Hull. Hull’s been good to me. Since 2005 I’ve run a successful insurance brokers in Hull and it’s been my home for more years than I care to remember. When the city was announced as having been awarded the UK City of Culture back in 2013, I was chuffed to bits. The city had to see off bids from the likes of Leicester, Plymouth, Dundee and York to win - some of which were arguably more obvious choices.

Why Backing Hull’s High Street Matters

Why Backing Hull’s High Street Matters

2018 wasn’t a happy year for the UK’s high streets and Hull wasn’t immune to this decline. Maplin, Sports Direct, Ann Summers, Peacocks, Toys R Us, in total 36 retail businesses closed in Hull in 2018, taking with them hundreds of jobs and local amenities.
