I ❤️ Wisbech - consultation results and workshops

Posted: Wed, 29 May 2019 11:18 by Susanah Farmer

Public engagement events planned as part of I ❤️ Wisbech campaign More than 1,000 people have spoken in a community survey about Wisbech – and now residents are being invited to hear the results and learn how feedback will be used to help develop future services and projects in the town.

Three public engagement events are being held next month to share the results of the I ❤️ Wisbech campaign survey, which asked people what was good about the town, not so good and what could be changed. The campaign was launched in November last year by the I ❤️ Wisbech team, which is made up of a number of local community organisations along with Cambridgeshire County Council, Fenland District Council and Wisbech Town Council.

The engagement events are inviting people who live and work in the town to come and have their say on the survey results, find out about the next steps and see what development opportunities they could get involved with if they wish. Everyone is welcome and free food and refreshments will be available.

The three I ❤️ Wisbech events are taking place on:

• Saturday, June 22, 1.30pm to 3.30pm – Oasis Centre, St Michaels Avenue, Wisbech.

• Wednesday, June 26, 10am to 12 noon – Queen Mary Centre, Queens Road, Wisbech.

• Thursday, June 27, 5pm to 7pm – Rosmini Centre, Queens Road, Wisbech.

Russell Rolph, of Support Cambridgeshire, who is managing the project on behalf of the I ❤️ Wisbech team, said: "The I ❤️ Wisbech team has been working with the residents of Wisbech and received over 1,000 replies to our survey about what's good, not so good and what could be changed in the town. "Through these engagement events in June we hope to feedback all what was said, and provide opportunities for people to take the next step with us, but only if they want to. I would urge people to attend. Food and refreshments will be provided and we have chosen three venues on different days and times, so hopefully we can get a relatively big turnout." Councillor Chris Boden, Leader of Fenland District Council, said: "It's great that so many people from all parts of the Wisbech community have already got involved and added their voice to the I Heart Wisbech campaign. We're building a picture of what people think about their town which helps us to understand how we can develop future services and support even more resident-led activity."

The I ❤️ Wisbech team is made up of Cambridgeshire County Council, Fenland District Council, Wisbech Town Council, Support Cambridgeshire, Care Network Cambridgeshire, Clarion, CPSL Mind, Ferry Project, HealthWatch, Hunts Forum of Voluntary Organisations, Living Sport and the Oasis Community Development Trust. » Less
