While preparations were underway for the judges’ visit for the Pride of Place competition in June, we asked adults and children in our community if they felt proud to live here and why. We created 2 survey booklets from the responses we received – one for the children’s responses, and one for the adults’. These we gave to the judges during our presentation.
With just over 2 weeks to go before we learn the outcome of our nomination, we wanted to make these booklets available for everyone to read online. Regardless of the verdict on November 26th, we have plenty to be proud of and to celebrate in this little community.
Here are the links for the survey. Hopefully they will work! Thank you to everybody who took the time to submit a response.
