Data Protection
Because the Society prepares its membership list on a computer but currently uses that list only for communicating with members the Data Protection Act 1998 does not apply to the list. The only personal information held by the Society is that which appears in the membership list. The list is distributed only to members of the Society for personal use and is not used or distributed by the Society or Branches for any commercial or other purpose.


We have an extensive music library which we need to find a new home for – can anyone suggest a suitable location? It needs to be in or near Brentwood so that it is accessible when we need it for meetings, and be clean, dry and secure.

Bass recorder: The branch has a bass which is available for members to borrow, either to play at a meeting or to take home to practise. Please contact Madeline if you would like to borrow it.
