Last few days to com­plete sur­vey

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Niki Ten­nant

Cam­bus­lang res­i­dents are be­ing urged to have their say be­fore a com­mu­nity sur­vey closes on Mon­day.

The sur­vey was launched at Sum­mer­fest and aims to dis­cover lo­cals’ view of what’s good, what’s bad and what needs to change in Cam­bus­lang.

Linda Wal­lace, com­mu­nity coun­cil mem­ber and sur­vey team mem­ber, said: “As a com­mu­nity coun­cil, we want to get a bet­ter idea of the com­mu­nity’s pri­or­i­ties for im­prov­ing Cam­bus­lang.

“The sur­vey is one of the most com­pre­hen­sive assess­ments of lo­cal opin­ion about the town con­ducted in re­cent years.”

The sur­vey also wants to es­tab­lish where peo­ple source in­for­ma­tion about what’s hap­pen­ing in Cam­bus­lang, whether from fam­ily and friends, so­cial media, work col­leagues, clubs, churches or the Re­former.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil mem­ber Michelle Farmer said: “We have been over­whelmed by the re­sponse.

“Peo­ple have been tak­ing the op­por­tu­nity to give their ideas on how we can make the town bet­ter.

“The re­sponse was so good that we de­cided to keep the sur­vey run­ning through­out the school hol­i­day pe­riod to give as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble the chance to com­plete it.”

The com­mu­nity coun­cil found that, while many peo­ple are com­plet­ing the sur­vey online, large num­bers of peo­ple pre­ferred to re­spond on pa­per, and copies were made avail­able in the li­brary, com­mu­nity cen­tres, churches, cafes and clubs.

Uni­ver­sal Con­nec­tions are help­ing to en­sure that many young peo­ple make their views known.

The com­mu­nity coun­cil is urg­ing those who have yet to com­plete the sur­vey to do so online.

Cam­bus­lang com­mu­nity coun­cil trea­surer, John Bachtler, said: “We want to use the re­sults of the sur­vey to de­velop a new com­mu­nity strat­egy for Cam­bus­lang, so the sur­vey needs to re­flect the views of all parts of the com­mu­nity. Please give us your opin­ion be­fore Au­gust 31.”
