A Malvern insurance broker is celebrating its name-change with a couple of community events.

A-Plan Insurance, which has a branch in Church Street, Great Malvern, is changing its name to Howden.

From October 2, Howden Malvern, will host both a coffee morning and a ‘drinks and nibbles’ business networking event, to thank clients and the community for their support, and introduce them to the new name. 

A-Plan joined the Howden Group, which has more than 100 high street branches, in 2021.

Ryan Lane, branch manager at Howden Malvern, said: “We’ve been a part of the Howden family for two years now, and in that time, our clients have enjoyed the same great service and advice that they’ve always known from us.

“We want to reassure our clients that it’s the same great people, and great service that you’ve come to expect from A-Plan Insurance, but we now have a new name, and a new look at our branch.

“We’re still a local insurance broker, focused on helping our clients get value for money on their home, motor and business insurance, with a friendly and expert team of staff.

“Our upcoming events are our way of saying thank you to our clients, and answer any questions they may have, and welook forward to looking after them for many years to come as Howden.”

Howden Malvern is one of 108 high street branches across the UK, and with each branch hosting two community events, there will be 216 events celebrating this next chapter. 

Mr Lane added: “Howden was founded on trust, friendship, expertise, empowerment, and independence, and these core principles remain at the heart of what sets the business apart.

“We’re excited to be celebrating our new name alongside all the branches across the country, as our ethos has always been about serving local people, locally.

“It’s one new name, 216 celebrations.”
