Welcome to another Newsletter.

First a quick look back..........

Saturday 14th April 2018 Annual Club Dinner.

A great evening at the Corinium Hotel.

A good meal with good company. A big thank you to Eric for doing all the negotiating!!

It is a great pity that there were so few of us there.

So, let’s ask the question, do you really want to continue with this event?

And now, coming events:- #

Saturday 19th May. Brian Hotchkies Dance.

Hopefully you will get this newsletter before Saturday but please do not miss this one!!

Brian is one the best callers in the whole world.

He is good and fun to dance to!!

Get your ticket this week.

We are OK for raffle prizes (thanks to those members who have generously donated).

Thursday 31st May 2018.

This is a 5th Thursday in the month.

Howard is arranging the evening and there will be a good selection of guest callers.

Thursday 14th June. Annual General Meeting.

It’s that time of the year again!!

Sometime next week I will be sending out the paper work for the meeting. So look out for,

Minutes of last year’s meeting, balance sheet and nomination forms for Committee members.

Please print off your own copies of the papers since I will not be providing them at the meeting.

I will however provide papers for members not on e mail list.

Remember you must ask your nominees permission before you add his/her name to paper.

Nominations to me please the week before the AGM, ie 7th June.

A Saturday in June.

On Sunday 24th June, the Ukey Dukes are having a fun concert in the Abbey Grounds in Cirencester.

Why not come along and listen (they are a lot of fun: I saw them on the Bank Holiday in the Market Place; great entertainment.)

Bring along a picnic, rug or chair to sit on and enjoy listening to them.

The concert starts at 1400 so be there soon after 1330 and grab a seat! If wet, stay at home!!

What is this you may ask? Its full name is General Data Protection Regulation and it comes into force on 25th May 2018.

This Act requires any Club, holding personal information of other people, to advise those people what they hold and for what purpose.

It is quite a complicated act and one which has caused a lot of sleepless nights for Club officials.

We already have your names, addresses, e mail addresses, telephone number and birthday dates on file.

We will shortly be sending out forms via e mail for you to approve and agree that we can hold this information in a locked filing system.

This form will need to be e mailed back to sender.

Members not on the e mail list will be given paper documents.

It is essential that we have your permission.

Without this your data will be deleted and we will be unable to contact you as we have been doing in the past.

The form will sent out shortly!

S.U.I.A.S - Happy reading!!! Alan
