about a year maybe 18 months. He has organised two Christmas concerts and two variety shows. He has been a very popular , far more popular than the vicar it has to be said.

voluntary. Was the vicar in breach of the data protection act to disclose his spent conviction to the congregation? If he commits suicide over this will the vicar be responsible ?
congregation and friend of the choirmaster/organist
I think the vicar is out of order to put confidential data in the public domain when he represents no risk to anyone and has no unsupervised access to any vulnerable adults or children.He plays the church organ on a Sunday in full view of everyone and conduct choir practice once a week for 10 adult choir members average age 60 years old!
Thank you. All he wanted was to make a new start in a new place and put his past behind him. This is a small village and putting this disclosure into the public domain which was quite unnecessary and fails to safeguard his reputation his dignity or any potential future 'victims' who do not as yet exist.
