FID ANNONCEMENT TO FID MEMBERS. March 2014

As most of you are aware Colin Hanson passed away in late January. At the time we decided to look into offering an alternate 3rd party liability insurance so there was a choice of groups to go with. Out of politeness and etiquette we contacted Colinís family, with various discussions over the past month we have taken over FID itself with the families blessing. At present the whole system is on a card file index so there is a lot of work to transfer Data onto a database, so please understand we have lots to do so please have patience with us if you have outstanding payments for renewal etc. we will deal with them ASAP. You were informed by Elaine that you will be covered until the end of this year, which is still the case, this will give us enough time to sort things, change all the stationary with all the new details, etc. for now we will adapt what we have. For this year you will not receive any bulletins, these will start again in 2015 if all goes to plan. We did not take over any finances from Colin and his family, all that is left in the account will be donated to cancer research as requested by Colin, so we are starting completely from scratch financing things ourselves. We will be having a dedicated phone line installed the number is yet to be issued, you can get us on mobile number 07944 464822 or email fid.cs@virginmedia.com. This is so it separates it from our home life and Central Searchers. At Elaineís request please do not contact her any more regarding FID all enquiries to us. For any future correspondence please contact us on CSFID 27, Webb Road RAUNDS Wellingborough Northants NN9 6H Kind Regards Richard and Gill Evans
