Welcome to NFU Mutual's Wickham branch, which is based between Southampton and Portsmouth. Whatever your insurance needs, from coast to countryside, commercial or personal, we may be able to assist you by providing cover. With a traditional background in agricultural issues, we provide support and advice for SMEs and, increasingly, commercial customers, and if there is something else, please do not hesitate to give our team a call, send us an e-mail or visit our branch.

Our team

Jim Twiney

I grew up on a family farm and have maintained an interest in farming over the years, which means my clients know I appreciate the challenges posed by farming in the 21st century and ever-changing requirements. I have been running the Wickham branch since 1984 and am group secretary of the NFU. I enjoy farm renewal reviews, but also visiting new businesses, as I find there are many entrepreneurial businesses now established on, or in, former farm buildings, which require flexible insurance cover as they grow. expand text

Gemma Jones

I have worked as an agent at NFU Mutual since 2008 and manage the Wickham branch with Jim. I enjoy commercial insurance, especially client visits to see how a business is run, but I deal with all aspects of general insurance, everything from personal travel, car and home cover, to commercial policies as businesses alter over time. Prior to working in insurance I was a CeMap qualified mortgage adviser in a local brokerage, but my first role was with HSBC as a telephone mortgage adviser. That was my grounding in the highly regulated financial industry. I draw upon both my financial expertise and local connections when working with the team. Together we pride ourselves on offering local support, a swift response to all enquiries and excellent customer service. expand text

Tanya Godwin

Office Manager
I joined the Wickham branch in 2014 and am responsible for the day-to-day running of the office, the team’s calendar and accounting. I deal with all types of initial enquiries and no two days are the same, but I am licensed in all motor, house and small business packages, such as insurance cover for offices, retailers and property owners. I’m currently undergoing CII licensing plus further business licences and really enjoy the variety working as part of this team. You’ll find me outdoors more often than not too, because I enjoy walking my dogs to keep fit. expand text

Kat Cessford

Customer Service Adviser & Life Lead Co-Ordinator
I joined the Wickham branch after starting my NFU Mutual career in the Chippenham office. I can assist you with your motor, home and personal insurance and make sure that you stay insured through timely reminders and making sure cover is up-to-date. Another part of my work is to organise NFU Mutual Financial Adviser’s diary and keep it packed with customer appointments. expand text
