CAB in sur­vey re­quest

Help wanted

Rutherglen Reformer - - Clare Haughey - Jonathan Ged­des

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang lo­cals are be­ing urged to take part in a na­tion­wide sur­vey re­gard­ing food.

The plea came from the lo­cal Cit­i­zen’s Ad­vice Bu­reau, who are hop­ing for feed­back to their Food on the Ta­ble sur­vey, which is run­ning for the next month.

Top­ics cov­ered in the ques­tion­naire in­clude cost, choice, ac­cess and qual­ity of food.

Ruther­glen & Cam­bus­lang Ci­ti­zens Ad­vice Bu­reau Man­ager Sharon Hamp­son said: “The peo­ple who come through our doors of­ten talk about how hard it can be for them to put food on the ta­ble.

“Cost is cer­tainly a ma­jor is­sue for many, but it is not the only one.

“We also hear from peo­ple who find it hard to ac­cess good qual­ity food in the lo­cal shops. The Scot­tish CAB net­work is run­ning this na­tional sur­vey, and I want to make sure that Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang peo­ple form a big part of the to­tal re­sponses. The re­sults will be used to in­form govern­ment min­is­ters and help shape fu­ture pol­icy on food, so it would be a shame if peo­ple here missed out on their chance to have their say.

“So we are ask­ing ev­ery­one in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang to com­plete this short sur­vey. We want to hear from peo­ple of all back­grounds and sec­tions of so­ci­ety.

“It only takes a few min­utes and you don’t have to give your name, but the more re­sponses we get the stronger our voice will be.”

The sur­vey is avail­able on­line at foodon­thetable and pa­per copies will be avail­able at the lo­cal Ci­ti­zens Ad­vice Bu­reau on Cam­bus­lang Main Street.
