New Electoral Roll

Every six years, parishes must completely update their Electoral Rolls and everyone wishing to be on the Roll must complete a new form. 2019 is one of those years, so if you wish to remain on our Electoral Roll, or to join it if you’re not already listed, you will need to complete the necessary form. The envelopes for those currently on the roll that were not collected by this week have been sent out; please return the completed form to the box at the back or to the Rectory by 15 March at the latest. There aare spare forms for those who have not received theirs or for those who are not currently on the Roll and wish to join it. The electoral roll forms also include a section asking for your consent for us to contact you on church related matters, as required by the GDPR. Please do complete this section so that we can ensure that you are contacted according to your preferences; a copy of the Parish’s Privacy Policy is also included in your envelope for reference. The APCM this year will be held on 3rd April and you will need to be on the new Electoral Roll to take part in elections at this meeting.
