Have your say on how to improve Cambuslang
Last few days to complete survey
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.”
Complete the survey by visiting www. cambuslangcommunitycouncil. com or grab a paper copy from Cambuslang Library, Cambuslang Institute, Eastfield Community Centre, McCallums Café, The Tea Bay or The John Fairweather.
