Please show respect and generosity to other gardeners and visitors at all times so we stay a sustainable and happy community association, can enjoy being in the garden, are welcoming to others, sharing our resources and skills locally. 

We collect volunteers’ personal data to record our membership. This is retained while they remain a member and is deleted or destroyed on request or on termination of membership. We will also keep data of persons who have asked us to do so, we currently refer to them as garden members.  Data is used in the legitimate interest of the Association to contact members and to keep them informed of association matters. We do not share or sell data with any third party outside or within the membership of the association unless requested to do so to comply with the law or to other authorities when we believe it is in the association's benefit to do so.
