Joining us is simple, and is open to all Coulsdon households in our area:
These comprise all Coulsdon addresses that are in the London Borough of Croydon, are west of the London to Brighton railway line and south of Smitham Downs Road.
Essentially, it is the Coulsdon Town electoral ward, trimmed by the main railway line.
A map of our area can be found here (opens in new page).
Membership costs a mere £3 per household, per year. Less expensive than many alternatives!
Membership can be taken out at any time in the year, and runs for 12 months.
Once upon a time, subscriptions were collected by an army of road stewards, but today, online payments (good) or a standing order (best) is preferred.
Our payment details may be found on this standing order form here (opens in new page)
When setting up your standing order, or paying by telephone banking or online banking, please use your house name or number in addition to your postcode as the reference: for example, 47 CR5 3DH,
so that we can match your payment to you!
At the same time, please use the email link below to drop a note to us so that we get your full names, email and phone number.
The General Data Protection Regulations require us to inform you how your data is used, and how to ask for its erasure.
We have changed the wording on the basis of recent advice, breaking down your consent into different categories.
The contact information that we collect from you when you join (and at any subsequent times) is held by us in a digital format, and is the basis of our membership system.
We expect to produce at least one paper newsletter per year, which will also be available in digital format on the website. Other newsletters - 2 or 3 per year - will only be in digital format on the website.
We also expect to be issuing 'eblasts': regular or ad-hoc emails with items that we expect to be of interest to Coulsdon residents.
So we need your explicit consent to opt-in for:
Delivery of paper newsletters - using your postal address.
Sending links to digital newsletters - using your email address.
Advising you when your subscription is falling due (if you do not use a standing order to pay us) - using email, phone or road steward.
'Eblasts': Regular or ad-hoc emails to inform you of news of the community, meetings or social events.
You may ask us to remove or modify your details from our systems at any time via the Consent Update email link below.
In the event that we have no contact with you for three years, we will remove the data without being asked.
We do not pass your details on to any third parties.
