Compass Celebrations!

Binnacle was established in a unique, strategic alliance between BH&HPA and Rural & Commercial Holdings back in December 2018. The name Binnacle was chosen for the business because a binnacle supports and houses a ship’s compass. 

Some six months later, it was celebrations all round on 26th of June, when the Compass team were able to finally and formally celebrate the re-birth of their Scheme. 

The official Grand Opening of the airy new Binnacle/Compass offices took place in Compass Celebrations!Pullman Court in Gloucester, which is also home to the British Holiday and Home Parks Association (BH&HPA). 

Invited guests were welcomed by both the Compass and BH&HPA teams for a champagne lunch and a blue ribbon was cut to mark the occasion. 

In welcoming everyone to the event, BH&HPA National Chairman Andrew Baragwanath explained how important it is to the Association to ensure that the right insurance cover and services are available to park business and their customers. He also outlined some of the history of the Compass Scheme, which dates back to 1976, and explained the work involved in establishing Binnacle. 

Binnacle’s Chairman, Allan Gribben (who is also Chairman of the Primary Group) then detailed some of the ambitious plans for Compass, noting the investments that are being made in people and systems to ensure that the Scheme not only meets, but exceeds, its customers’ expectations. 

Allan went on to thank the many people who had worked tirelessly to establish Binnacle, including the park-owning members of the Compass/BH&HPA Committee and the members of the Compass team. 

Summing up, Allan noted that ‘this is only the beginning’ for Compass 2.0!
