The results are in ... now let's meet
The Community Plan Steering Group (CPSG) invites the Kingston residents to discuss the results of the household survey and to plan how to take the views of the community forward.
The response rate to the survey was very high, with over 50% of households returning their questionnaire. Data from the household survey, plus the youth survey, will be used to help compile the community-led Parish Plan.
The meeting takes place on Thursday 20 October at 19.30 hours in the Kingston St Mary Village Hall. Please join the CPSG to review the results.
