Two Directors at Your Move Scott-Collier Taylor, the locally-owned Estate Agents and Lettings Agents with branches in Darlington, Yarm, Stockton and Stokesley report a superb start to 2013 with the first four months of the year (ended 30th April 2013) showing significant growth across both its Residential Sales and Lettings businesses when compared to the same period last year.

Critical illness insurance, also known as critical illness cover, is a type of insurance policy where the insurer is contracted to typically make a lump sum cash payment if the policyholder is diagnosed with one of the critical illnesses which will be listed within the insurance policy itself.

1 Add an accent colour
Using accessories, you can easily and cheaply add an accent colour to any room. You don’t have to spend much – sometimes less is more. A cushion or two, a vase, candles ... you get the idea.
