Congratulations to all who competed at states! Thanks to your camaraderie, determination, and dedication, we made history last weekend. Through snow, below zero temperatures, and a sketchy van, we showed Pennsylvania that the Speech & Debate team at the University of Pennsylvania is a force to be reckoned with.


I have much to say about the team and what it took to get us to this point, but I will save it for the email I plan on sending at the end of the semester. Until then, I am proud beyond words of what you've accomplished and what you will accomplish. You truly embody what this team stands for, the combination of excellence is speaking and support of teammates. I am a man who prides myself on my ability to speak, and yet today, I am rendered speechless. Thank you for giving me a final states that I will cherish and remember forever.


With Love,

JiLon Li

Shops that require protection for high risk goods held on the premises will usually need to declare the total values of each stock item. High risk shop stock and goods are those that attract thieves and are expensive to replace. Examples of high risk stock items are electronic equipment, cigarettes, and tobacco, designer clothing, computers and digital equipment, software, computer games and consoles, drugs pharmacy and medicines, watches and jewellery, mobile phones and radios, photographic equipment, power tools, TVs, DVDs, CDs and Wines and Spirits.

If your shop has high risk stock you can reduce the cost of your premiums by having adequate security in place. This includes an insurance company approved burglar and fire alarm, window grills, shutters and bars, CCTV and sprinklers. Many shop insurers will only offer stock cover if the minimum levels of security are in place for all shops, regardless of the stock contents held. A lot of insurers may offer further large discounts to the premium if the shop owner lives on or above the premises and is there at night.

Shops by their very nature deal with members of the public and a good insurance policy will usually contain liability cover as standard. This should include Public Liability of up to ?2,000,000 for any one claim by a member of the public who may suffer loss or injury visiting the shop.

If you employ staff all policies will offer Employers Liability cover of up to ?10,000,000 one event and because shops sell goods and services, Products Liability cover of ?2,000,000 for any one period of insurance.
