General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

Article Published: Thursday 17th May 2018 13:42:15 pm
You may or may not already be aware that there are new UK data privacy laws coming into effect on the 25th May. The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) means that you will have more control over how your data is used and to better protect it. All organisations, even those as small as Frinton Golf Club, have to adhere to the new regulations.

To reflect these new obligations and in recognition of the value of the data assets of the Club, we have introduced a new Information Security and Data Protection Policy. Copies are available from the Club. (PDF attached).


We are working our way towards compliance and hope to be so by the end of the month.

One of the main tasks is to have your permission to hold your details for the purposes specified. We shall do this in parallel with the forthcoming annual subscriptions renewal notifications.

In the interim, if you have any specific questions or concerns about the use of your data or the Policy, please contact us. We're here and happy to help.

Thank you for your help

NEWS FROM FRINTON SENIORS


After the recent bout of poor weather had caused two matches to be postponed, the Seniors of Frinton were pleased to be able to welcome their counterparts from Purdis Heath. The course conditions restricted any ‘run’ on the ball on fairways and the greens needed extra concentration in trying to assess the pace and line. All this added up to a close fought encounter with three of the eight matches being halved. Frinton ‘edged’ enough wins from the other ties and emerged with a four and a half to three and a half victory.



A MESSAGE TO ALL BEACH HUT OWNERS


My name is Ollie Bradbury and I am part of a Working Title Films production that will film a scene on Frinton Beach on the morning of Thursday, 26th April 20018.
We are looking for a beach hut we could possibly use for a camera position, looking down onto the scene on the beach below. I am therefore writing to ask whether it may be possible on the day to use your hut?
The scene involves two of our characters sitting on the beach, in dialogue and playing a guitar and singing. It is a simple scene with different camera angles, including, we hope, the angle looking directly down onto them. The film is a non-controversial
romantic comedy for cinematic release, with the beach and huts featuring as an iconic East Anglian landmark.
We hope to identify 2-3 huts between 80-109, picking one of them on the day when the Director decides where best for the scene to be positioned. We would then position a camera within the hut, filming through the open window onto the characters below. This would be for approximately one hour.
If you are local (so able to come over and unlock once we have a decision) and are willing to allow us to film, then please do not hesitate to contact me. Or simply want to know more before giving it consideration. My contact details are:-
Ollie Bradbury
Olliebradbury1@gmail.com
07711 872 946.
We have met with Tendring District Council and are in the process of formally applying for permission to film. We love this spot; it will look great on the screen and will, of course, respect the beach, its huts and the surrounds.
Yours sincerely,
Ollie.
