Martin French
Clerk to Crosthwaite & Lyth Parish Council.

Note - the PC meetings are now generally held on the 1st Tuesday in each month.

Parish Council E-mail

The Parish Council has agreed that the use of electronic communication with Parishioners may be far more effective than current notice boards etc. and has subsequently agreed to establish a database (GDPR compliant) of Parishioner email addresses via which it can communicate with Parishioners. However, the challenge is in obtaining the email addresses of parishioners.

The agreed email address collection process is via an “opt in” system whereby those already enrolled can forward the Parish Council updates to people who we feel would be interested. The recipients can then "opt in" by contacting the Clerk to the PC at the following address requesting that they also wish to receive a Parish Council update.
