Privacy and Cookies Policy

Privacy Statement

Your privacy is very important to us.

Any personal information you send us via our website is kept securely and we will never divulge your personal information to other organisations, unless to satisfy a specific request you have made of us.

Your communication with this website is securely encrypted, as confirmed by the display of a padlock in the address bar of your browser.

We do keep a record of which webpages have been visited to monitor overall use of the site but this does not entail collecting any data about you, it simply counts how many users have visited a page over a given time.

What we collect

We may collect the following information:

  • name and job title
  • contact information including email address and whereabouts in the parish you live

How we use any information you supply

  • To give you answers to any questions you might ask or
  • To ask you to clarify any suggestions or comments you have made
  • To understand what particular issues are of interest to certain sections of the parish
  • To send you notifications of new content on this website if you have asked us to do so.

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree – and most browsers assume that you will – the file is added and the cookie helps the website tailor its operations to you  by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Large commercial online shopping sites use cookies in very sophisticated ways. Our site only uses cookies in simple ways such as remembering what tabs you are looking at on the right hand side of each page, and, if you submit a comment, to show you when your comment is awaiting moderation and when it has been approved.

In the future we may use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This would help us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website. We would only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then remove the data from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.

Disabling cookies

Most browsers allow you to reject cookies, either completely or selectively.

To find out how to do so, visit

What happens if I set my browser to reject cookies?

The website will still work and you will be able to get the information you need.

But you may not be able to submit comments, and as we develop the site there may be other functions that either don’t work as well or don’t work at all without cookies.

If you ask us not to use cookies, we won’t be able to remember that you did ask us that, so you may find that we will keep on asking whether you want to accept cookies.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Such sites may also use cookies. If they do, they have the same duty to explain how cookies are used and how you may opt out.
