Use of Facebook: The privacy of club members was discussed as currently member names and photos are available on the public facebook page. Ideally this should be in a private way to protect people’s privacy. A closed group for members only to be created so that this can be used to ‘chat’ without private data being seen by the public. Club photos etc should be shared on this page rather than the public page.
