Committee Bulletin - May 2018

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

One of the biggest changes to UK data privacy law comes into effect on 25th May 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation, also known as GDPR, means that you'll have more control over how your data is used, and it ensures that organisations protect your personal data better.

To reflect these changes and new obligations, the Club has updated its privacy notice which now tells you what we do with your personal data, how it's used and your rights as an individual under the new law. The new privacy notice will be available on the website from 25 May, or you can contact us after that date and we'll send you a copy of it.

England Athletics is currently asking people involved in the sport, particularly as athletes, coaches or officials to log in to their England Athletics profile to confirm details including their mailing preferences.

This is being done due to important changes in the ways England Athletics will be communicating with the sport in the future, and the new General Data Protection Regulations that come into effect very soon.

If you have not yet done so, please go to to confirm your details, and use the Forgotten URN or Forgotten Password links if needed. (In the event that you have not received a link / reminder within one hour, please check your spam and junk folders.)

This will enable you to receive key information and other information in line with your stated preferences.

Evening Development Meetings

The next TAC development meeting is on Tuesday 5th June. These meetings are for members in age groups under 13 and above to gain experience in competition, and to possibly try other events.  Please talk to your coach if you are unsure what is involved.

Entry is available online only via the Tonbridge AC website; please note places in some events, particularly the high jump, will be limited and entry may close early.  Cost will be £3 per athlete regardless of how many events entered.

And of course, we need helpers. Please which event you can help with. It doesn’t matter if you have never jumped, vaulted or thrown a javelin, the officials will let you know what to do.

6.30pm: Javelin - 3 helpers

6.40pm: High Jump - 2 Helpers

6.45pm: Pole Vault - 2 Helpers
