Who we are

We are The Witham & Countryside Society, a not for profit voluntary organisation with the aim of: 

  1. encouraging high standards of architecture and planning; 

  2. stimulating public interest and pride in the environment; and 

  3. conservation, development and improvement of features of public amenity and historical interest in Witham and the surrounding area.


What information we hold and why

We keep the name and address of all members for record and contact purposes, and hand delivery of bulletins. We also hold email addresses for electronic bulletin delivery. In exceptional circumstances we will use email addresses to circulate important information to members.


What we do not do with this information

We will not share any of this information with a third party for any reason, give out a membership list or email addresses to anyone. We will not circulate information from third parties to members ourselves.


How we keep it secure

Membership records are held by the Membership Secretary on a personal PC, protected by industry standard data security, and not removed from the home. Email addresses are held by the Chairman, protected by industry standard data security and held online by BT Yahoo. All email distribution is by ‘Blind Carbon Copy’ (BCC) to protect member’s email addresses.
