Changes to the Mid Anglia webpage

To all members.

A recent government mandate, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), has made it necessary to create areas of the Mid Anglia website open only to Mid Anglia members.  This will be named Members' Page.  To that end, each registered Mid Anglia member will need to have a password that will enable access to the following pages:

Photos, downloads, Heron Flyer, forms and flag minutes.

To register as a Mid Anglia member contact Webmaster, together with your Caravan Club membership number, who will verify membership and issue a members' password.  Access will be by your e-mail address followed by the password.  This will need to be changed once login has been achieved.  Once registered, if you then forget your password, contact Webmaster who will reset it.

The website will be updated regularly so that members benefit from maximum security of any personal information handled by Mid Anglia.

MA members, who need access to these details, will need to register with MA by contacting Webmaster who will set up login details. Thank you.
