Summer 2018 Newsletter

The above newsletter has just been posted - so our Subscribers should receive them soon, with the obvious delays for overseas postings…

Your Newsletter has Your New Username and Password for the Members Only pages of the website - so look out for that, although a few of our subscribers have had to have a new one issued - so if the one in the Newsletter Fails, check your Email inboxes, please, we’ve issued you another!

So, if you’ve not had anything from us soon, be that by email, or by post, it may be that your contact details or subscription need updating

Any problems, please get in touch ASAP!

Many Thanks

GDPR Issues 

The Law is changing and whilst it is intended for commercial operators, the ODA have embraced the GDPR ethos, expanding upon the previous practices we implemented, where our members, friends, and subscribers have the choice of controlling whether we contact you, or not.

We’ve already sent GDPR related communications to all who have registered an email address with us - but, if you’ve not had that email - please note the following message:

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *


You may have gathered that the law relating to Data Protection is changing, on the 25th of May 2018…  

To that end,  please Open this form (HERE) and then click either:

  • YES…  If you’re happy to continue receiving electronic messages from us once your current subscription ends


  • NO… if you’d rather not receive further communications from us once your current subscription ends.

If we don’t receive any instruction from you on how to proceed, we will assume you don't wish to receive any further communication from us, and so your membership listing will become ‘doormant’.  Those who have previously resigned from the ODA may ignore this message, as we will not contact you unless you message us first.

Many thanks in anticipation,

Kind regards
