  • When you access any of the database driven areas of the site, such as the News, Local Groups, Shop and the Members Area functions, a "session cookie" is set to record the fact that you have successfully connected to the database. No personal information is stored in this cookie and, being a "session cookie", it is automatically deleted when you close your web browser.

  • If you choose the "Remember Me" option at the Members Area Log In screen a "persistent cookie" is set to hold your membership number and password for the next time you try and access the system. As this is a "persistent cookie" it will not be deleted when you close your browser. If you do not wish this cookie to be saved just don't select on the "Remember Me" option. If you have already set this option but now want to remove the cookie, please go to the "Log In / Log Out" page where you can unselect the "Remember Me" option.

  • When you access any page of our web  site we use Google Analytics Tracking cookies to collect data including the number of visitors, where visitors have come from and the pages they have visited during their session /  time spent on our site.
