Parish Notices Sunday 13th May 2018

The Rector writes ‘ As I mentioned last week, on 25th May, new Data Protection laws come into place throughout Europe (GDPR) and in order to stay within the law, the Parish must now have an explicit written consent from all of you in order to keep communicating with you and also to securely store your basic information (name, address, phone number, email etc) .You will be receiving a Consent Form along with your usual Parish Fête Raffle Booklets in the post in the coming days. Please do fill this form in, sign it and return it to the Parish Office/Church Wardens as without it, we cannot write to you or indeed contact you on any parish or diocesan matter. There will also be blank Consent Forms in each of the Churches. This week I have also printed the ‘Data Privacy Notice’ on the back page. Just talk to me if you need to know any more about GDPR and how it will affect us or you can read the Data Privacy notice under GDPR on our Parish Website
