So first things first – introductions:
I’m Kerry, I work at A-Plan in the Thatcham Specialist Branch. As a branch we wanted to be able to engage more with our clients, both new and old within the specialist market. We’re already involved in lots of events partnering with car clubs and car shows; however we wanted to start reaching out to people in many other ways and letting them know what we are all about, so that’s why I will be writing our blog!
A-Plan Insurance has been providing clients with the finest personal service since the 1960’s, and within that time has expanded massively to over 80 high street branches, A-Plan Thatcham being one in 1994.
Due to our enthusiasm for specialist vehicles, we have developed an experienced team dedicated to classic, kit, high performance and modified cars, as well as imported vehicles.
As an individual branch we are very proud to be associated with many car clubs. This means we can participate in lots of exciting events, and we do have a few favourite car shows.
Silverstone classic is always a great event, it is one of the biggest classic motor racing festivals in the world! With over 100,000 attendees and 10,000 classic cars it is certainly one not to miss. Oh and the best bit, live music to enjoy all evening. The line up in previous years has featured Status Quo, Bonnie Tyler and Reef. Great fun after a day’s racing!
The Super Car Seige is one I am really excited to be involved in this year. I will be abseiling down the Spinnaker Tower to help raise money for SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) with the fantastic Sporting Bears charity. So it is all for a very good cause! In addition to lots of charitable actives throughout the day there will be a display of supercars all available for Dream Rides – but more about that later! A great day for the family.
A few other favourites of ours include the National Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh, NEC Classic motor show and the National BMW Festival at Gaydon. So we shall hope to see you all there!
We have a very exciting year planned here at A Plan Thatcham and all of it will be featured on this blog! Keep an eye out for car club features, interviews, articles within the motor industry and even monthly competitions and prizes, (January’s prize was a track day experience won by Mr Stone from Southampton!) I’m also doing various activities throughout the year including track days and even off roading in a 4×4 so watch this space!
Here at A-Plan we are all very excited for year ahead, and look forward to sharing it all with you.
