JN & E Capstick celebrates 50 years in business

Published on: Tuesday 28th August 2018

Family-run JN & E Capstick Insurance, based in Kirkby Stephen will celebrate 50 years in business.

Based in Market Square, with an office in Sedbergh, the firm will be holding an open-to-all anniversary event at Newbiggin-on-Lune village hall on September 9.

Newbiggin-on-Lune is where founder Norman Capstick began the business in September 1968, when he received his first agency agreement from the then Provincial Insurance.

The firm was then selling motor, home and farm insurance to the local community, and now also offers financial investments and is expanding its agricultural insurance cover.

Norman’s wife Elsie became a partner in 1973 and continues to keep a knowledgeable eye over the business.

The firm has been run by their son, David, since 1989 and following Norman’s death in 1998.

The financial investments side of the company is run by their daughter Alison’s husband, Gary Capstick who joined in 1989.
