We have had a fabulous response to our Reader’s Portraits of Great Insurance People competition. The playtex board hoardings of the Bankstone News Gallery are literally groaning under the weight of top-quality work, you’ve already sent in and don’t forget you still have until February 14 to send in your submissions if you have already sent us your masterwork.

Here now, for your sensory delectation is a selection of entries that caught our eye. But don’t worry if yours is not among them – no judging has yet taken place, so you still have every chance of scooping the top prize of the (previously unclaimed) hamper in which all the stuff from Fortnum’s arrived just before Christmas. You can fill it with any old rubbish from Aldi come December and your valued business partners will never know you haven’t spent a bomb on them.

    What our clients say about us

    Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
