New Forest Branch

We take the time to understand your needs


Welcome to NFU Mutual's New Forest branch where we pride ourselves on putting our customers at the forefront of everything we do by providing a personal service utilising our extensive local knowledge.

We offer a range of insurance and financial services all delivered personally by the team from our friendly local branch in the heart of the New Forest at New Park, Brockenhurst.

Supporting smaller farms

Jimmy Doherty knows all about life on a smaller farm. His passion for rare breeds began just 10 years ago on a small farm in Suffolk. So we’re delighted that Jimmy’s given our Farm Essentials insurance his backing. Whether you’re already running a successful small farm, or are starting out from 
scratch, ask your local Agent about all the ways we can support you.

Our team

Sam Dovey

Sam Dovey
Senior Agent & NFU Group Secretary

Sam joined the New Forest team back in 1999 as Chris Whitlock’s assistant group secretary, dealing with the local NFU work and an agent for NFU Mutual. Although he still feels the ‘new person’, Sam deals with business, motor and personal clients within the branch as well as NFU work and Forest Matters; something that keeps him very busy – at all times!

Sam is also involved locally with a number of Forest organisations, such as the New Forest Trust and the New Forest and Hampshire County Show.

Outside of work Sam enjoys running and being in the New Forest and spending time with his family.

Lorrayne Blomfield

Lorrayne Blomfield
Agent & Assistant Group Secretary

Lorrayne has been a client of the New Forest branch since 1980 and during this time has always found NFU Mutual approachable and helpful. Lorrayne therefore was very pleased when she was offered the opportunity to join the branch as a sales executive in 2006 and then went on to become an agent in November 2010.

Lorrayne deals mainly with business clients and is always keen to visit prospective customers at their homes or their business premises to discuss their individual needs and requirements.

Outside of work Lorrayne breeds and shows Simmental Cattle with her family and attends local agricultural shows.
