Things are changing with the FLBClub Newsletter

At FLBClub, we welcome change! A change is as good as a rest they say! In marketing terms, a change in content, format or delivery can promote more interest and encourage more businesses to take notice of the once-a-month Newsletter for FLBClub members.

From October, the FLBClub Newsletter will be produced by Bulldog Websites and will have a slightly different format. Deadlines will remain the same i.e. about two days before the end of the month.

The deadline, therefore, for the October FLBClub Newsletter will be Saturday 28th September and all articles and photos should be sent to Emma at newsletter@flbc.org.uk.

FREE for FLBC members!

The FLBC monthly Newsletter has always been one of the benefits of being a Club member – a place where you can advertise to other members what is going on with you and your business absolutely FREE OF CHARGE.

Now, the FLBClub are going one step further. The monthly Newsletter is still the place for members only to advertise their news, but it will now be delivered to non-members as well.

Around one thousand people on the FLBClub database will receive the Newsletter and learn more about our members and their businesses.

However, only FLBClub members will be allowed to advertise in the Newsletter, but around 1000 members and non-members will be able to read it.


As a signed up member of FLBClub, you will not have received an email from the Fairford & Lechlade Business Club asking you to confirm your agreement to be on our mailing list. This is because you already signed up to received information from the Club when you joined as a member. You have a legitimate interest in receiving information from us, so you do not need to do anything!

Fairford & Lechlade Business Club would like to make you aware that we have updated and changed our Privacy Policy in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You do not need to do anything about this as a member. It is for information only.

The new Privacy Policy can be accessed here at: https://www.flbc.org.uk/privacy-policy.

Please be assured that, as a member of the Fairford & Lechlade Business Club, we take your personal data very seriously.
