HAPPY BIRTHDAY Derrick (90th)
Have a great day – 13th March 2019
Best wishes and congratulations from all of your friends in the Severn Spinners Flying Club.
“Derrick has contributed a great deal to the club over many years of membership and of course it’s great for us all to have a celebrity in our midst.
Derrick has appeared in a number of issues of RCM&E, showing off some of his superb creations and as the attached picture shows, also appeared with long time kindred spirit Mike, in the Kidderminster shuttle back in 2001”.

1. Accounts Audit Two volunteers to audit the Club Accounts at the end of the month ready for the AGM. As you may expect, the accounts are quite simple, guidance notes are provided and the task should only take about an hour.
2. Club Secretary
Whilst all committee members are of up for re-election at next months AGM, Ian Purcell, after many years on our Committee, has given notice that he will now be ‘retiring’ from the role. If you would like to offer your services in this capacity, then please let either Ian, Ray or myself know.
We wish to welcome Chris as a new Club Member who has rejoined after a few years break from flying. He says that the break has not stopped him from model building and the first year membership fee is a birthday present from Chris’s son Michael.
Peter & Philip Burdon
We wish to welcome two new members joining the Severn Spinners Flying Club last Tuesday 6th February 2018. They are brothers Peter and Philip Burden who are both experienced model pilots and builders.
Peter met a few of us at last Tuesday Social Meeting at the King & Castle Pub accompanied by his lady wife.
PLANNING PERMISSION– (Use of Flying Field)
Our website has now been updated to include a copy of the Wyre Forest District Council Planning Permission document listing and detailing seven conditions allowing the Severn Spinners Radio Control Society to use the area of land for flying radio controlled model aircraft.
If we do not comply with these conditions the Planning Permission may be withdrawn. This means that we would have to seek an alternative location.
ALL MEMBERS – PLEASE READ & RESPOND
The committee are taking the necessary steps to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which becomes effective on the 25th May. As you may expect, this is not particularly complex for us and we have been assisted in the compliance process by the BMFA, providing advice and document templates for clubs. Accordingly, we have published a club Privacy Notice which requires a positive response from each individual.
Please read the attached notice and then respond with:
‘I HAVE READ AND AGREE TO TERMS OF THE SEVERN SPINNERS RCS PRIVACY NOTICE’
To pre-empt some questions I would add,
a) We only hold the personal information contained within the Membership Application Form (Address, Telephone No, email address, Date of Birth, BMFA No, Signature)
b) In future, anyone renewing their annual membership more than 3 months late will need to complete a ‘Member Details Form’ as we will have deleted their personal data from our records. This does NOT mean that they will need to re-apply for membership.
