Subscribe to our emailing list
Click this link http://eepurl.com/dmHmnj to join the Harberton Village email circulation
which uses the MailChimp service and is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in force with effect from 25 May 2018.
MailChimp allows you to subscribe / unsubscribe automatically. After completing the form initially, you will be asked to complete the subscription process by clicking a link in an email MailChimp will send you. It's as simple as that.
The MailChimp system ensures total confidentiality of all email addresses. Your email address will never be revealed unless you specifically include it in your message for circulation, or agree to it being included. The aim of the Circulation is to offer a means of immediate local communication for practically any purpose.
The email circulars are very much specific to the village and contain personal small ads (e.g. for sale, wanted, nothing 'large-scale' commercial), lost & found, public notices, events, anything particular happening at the pub, church matters, occasional nature notes... all that sort of thing. They are also irregular - there might be 3 in a week, then nothing for a week.
The Harberton Village Email Circulation continues to grow steadily in parallel with the website. In principle it covers the same area as the website (website coverage area, essentially the Harberton side of the parish). Well over half of the 300+ households in that area are already covered by the circulation. Anyone in the website area (and beyond) can join the circulation. We even have a couple of recipients in Australia!
Please note: If you are a Gmail user,
the e-circulars may well sometimes arrive in your 'Promotions' inbox folder rather than 'Primary' - if you see these separately - or possibly even in your Spam folder, so do please check the latter if you think you are not receiving what you should be receiving.
Be aware that some Email Systems may
sometimes class the Village Emails as Spam/Junk
Because the emails are sent to a relatively large number (in local terms) of addresses at the same time using MailChimp, they may sometimes finish up in your Spam/Junk folder, so do please check there if you think you may not be receiving them.
MailChimp is a commercial tool which large companies pay to use for marketing purposes (hence the occasional spam classification), but is free to use for a relatively small number (in commercial terms) of addresses, whilst also observing a monthly total send limit.
Some of the items we've managed to find new homes for over the years include a rabbit hutch, pieces of worktop, various pieces of furniture, a rubber plant, 5-bar gate, concrete reinforcing mesh... to name but a few, and located various requested items for people .
