Unless you’ve been living in a really remote village somewhere, you will have heard of GDPR. It’s a new regulation that says we have to show that everything we send to people has been requested by them.

It reminds me of the character in Dad’s Army who used to say, hopefully, “Permission to speak, Sir” to Captain Mainwaring.

What we need now is confirmation from you that we do, indeed, have your permission to send.

At the same time, can we say thank you to those who have responded with comments to different blogs, with thoughts and ideas as well as with ‘thank you’.

Coming soon is a blog on how scientists are analysing the ‘Super Agers’, who live to a ripe old age with the brainpower of people 30 years their younger. And no, they are not the healthy-living, exercise-oriented, diet-controlled, low-blood pressure types you may imagine. But they do have several traits in common, which we can all adopt. More to follow!

    I may have already confirmed that Pilgrims’ Friend Society has my permission to send me information to my email address but just in case I haven’t I am confirming that permission here.

    Yes, please keep me on your list. I value receiving your news and thoughts via the blog – and it helps keep me in touch with the work of the Association. When my Dad moved into Royd Court it was a real life saver, and not just for him. We’re all still going strong, now well into his 104th year.
