Dear Fellow Members,
With this letter you will find enclosed our Winter Walk Programme and Newsletter.
This will be the last mailing of these documents which in future will be available online on our website, https://www.arun-adur-ramblers.org.uk, where they can be printed off, if required.
I would also advise that future notification of our AGM will be found on our website and where possible advised to members by email.
To this end all members need to ensure that Ramblers Head Office have details of their current email addresses, it would also be worthwhile checking that all data held by Ramblers and especially marketing preferences are up to date. Ramblers Head Office send us a monthly summary of member’s details and this is the source of our contact list.
As noted in several places on the website, members may update their details by following the links on the website to the Ramblers website or by contacting Ramblers Head Office directly. Under the General Data Protection Regulations we are not allowed to maintain our own Group membership contact list.
The Ramblers’ Association is a charity and by accessing your AGM documents, future Walks Programme and Newsletters on line you are helping us to save on the costs of both printing and postage which consume a considerable part of our budget. This releases funds to enable the Ramblers to continue its core work of protecting Britain’s footpaths and promoting walking.
In a small way it will also help the environment by saving on the use of paper and ink.
I appreciate that there may be members who do not have access to email or the internet and any member who would like to receive these documents and walking programmes by post should apply to me in writing and a printed version will be forwarded to them.
I appreciate your help in making these changes.
Chair Arun Adur Group
