I have been asked by the National Trust, (one of my new sites), if i have insurance.

I have my BDI Cert (somewhere) from the BBKA, but is there proof that we are covered for public liabilty, i understand we are covered under the membership up to 5 Mil. ?

Is there something i can provide ?

Not charging, but yes a weird Licence thingy was mentioned,

After being told it was ok to move my hives there, and as i always do, promptly got on with it, they have been there just 3 days, had a phone call from the gen manager tonight, mentioning that licence, and also they forgot to check with the tenants of a property they rent out whos enclosed garden is about 20 feet away from my hives, so i may be told to move them...........

I got a photocopied piece of paper from the BBKA saying your membership card will be with you when we get some more, we have run out at the minute, your membership number is *********. I am STILL WAITING.

I am not renewing my affiliation with the BBKA at the end of this season, but I still will want 3rd party insurance next year.

Does anyone have any recomendations for policies that you use already?

Is it not true that your PL cover is there provided you are not charging for your services? ie none commercial

I am in the same frame of mind as you J.

A quick seach of tinternet gave this

Another thought is I have public liablity insuarce through BASC (British assocaition for Shooting and coservation) and that covers other country pursuits.

BUT, when checking into that I was informed that most normal house insurance polices cover you for PLI. So maybe just check out your home insurance first?
