Unless you have been ‘off grid’ for some time, you will not have escaped the fact that GDPR (new data protection and privacy law)  becomes law on 25th May 2018.

The regulation means that businesses need to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens within EU states. Personal data includes things can identify a person: such as your so name, address, web data, car registration, etc.

Even if you have no idea what GDPR is, then you’ll no doubt have had your inbox burned with email after email after email on the subject.

As an independent family business, we take these matters very seriously and are fully compliant with the new law. We also care how our personal information is used.

We have clearly laid out how we handle your personal information in our new Data Protection and Privacy Policy, linked here, and found on our homepage.

We like to stay in touch with our loyal customers, whom we already have an existing relationship with, and those who have already purposely joined our mailing list. We will continue to do so using ‘Legitimate Interest’.

“Legitimate interest is one of the six lawful bases for processing personal data. You must have a lawful basis in order to process personal data in line with the ‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’ principle.” – The ICO

We also agree with the points made by Steve Wood, Deputy Information Commissioner, in the ICO’s blog “Raising the bar – Consent under GDPR”.

As always, if at any time you want to change your permission, or opt out, then you can do so by clicking the ‘unsubscribe button’ or by emailing us at

We are now fully compliant, and will always respect your choice, and will make it easy for you to exercise your wishes.
