And it's goodbye from us! this is it! This is the last email we will be sending to you unless you choose to subscribe to our new GDPR Compliant Mailing List (which you can do here:- )

I'm sure you received numerous emails over the last couple of weeks with regard to the new GDPR regulations which some into effect today and how your personal data is stored and used... and this is another one of those as you were on our Friends of Royal Wanstead School Mailing List.

The FoRWS Mailing List had been collated over the last 20 or so years from various sources; Marianne Thorne's old lists, reunions attendance lists, friends passing on email addresses, even old contacts from Friends Reunited and other RWS websites.

However, even though everyone on the mailing list shared a common history, as an Old Wansteadian (former pupil of Royal Wanstead School), not everyone on the list had given "explicit consent" to be contacted by us.  This is one of the things the new General Data Protection Regulation is addressing; you must now give explicit consent to any mailing lists within the EU for them to contact you.

Therefore, we emailed everyone on the 15th May with regard to this and explained that if you still wanted to receive emails from us regarding FoRWS activities and news, you would need to provide "explicit consent" by signing up to our new GDPR Compliant Mailing List (here:- )

If you do not choose to sign up to the new list, this is the last email you receive from us and your details will be erased.  Please note however, if you have booked to attend the next reunion on 30th June and provided your email as contact details, we may contact you via email with regard to that event.

If you would like to read our Privacy Policy with regard to how we use and store our mailing list data, you can find it here:-

If you would like to attend the 2018 School Reunion on 30th June, you can find the booking form here:-

You can subscribe to our new mailing list at any time in the future if you would like to continue to hear from us.  This is the link:-  

Thank you for your attention this far and I would like to take this final opportunity to wish you health and happiness in the coming years.

With Kindest Regards
