Do you live or work in Wisbech? What do you love about the town and what would you do to improve it?
Those are the questions being asked in a new I Heart Wisbech campaign to gather people’s views and use them to help develop future services and projects in the town.
The campaign has been launched by the I Heart 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.
Team members have been out and about in the town centre gathering views and an online survey has been launched asking three questions – what do you love about Wisbech, how would you make it better and what would you like to do about it?
The survey is available at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/JLTXO/ and is expected to run until January 2019.
Russell Rolph of Support Cambridgeshire (who is managing the project on behalf of the I Heart Wisbech team) said:
Those who live, work and invest in an area are the best people to ask on what’s right about where they live, and what could be improved.
The feedback will be used to develop key themes in community development and to hopefully uncover the next generation of social action champions in the town. So if you have a great idea on how to improve Wisbech we would love to hear from you.
The campaign links to the ongoing Wisbech 2020 Vision and its work to tackle local issues and deliver future health, economy and infrastructure improvements.
