Friday Flyer Satisfaction Survey

The Friday Flyer is always evolving. We got ourselves a new home, which we’ve still to enjoy and a shining new phone number. If you haven’t got our new number yet, it is 01422 252 209.

So whilst we’re renovating and generally overhauling, we’d like the chance to hear your views, to make sure we’re still offering you the same approachable, informative service.

Frankly, we couldn’t do this without you. Your messages, input, events adverts is what makes the Friday Flyer so invaluable to us all.

We have advertised several surveys in the Friday Flyer. This time, we’d like you to answer one for us!

Take the Friday Flyer Satisfaction Survey !!!

We are always delighted to hear from you and we want to make sure that the service we deliver meets your expectations.

Answer as many or as few questions, as many times as you like.

This is your flyer. Have your say!

We hope to follow this up with a practical session in September where we can look at contraception and Sexually Transmitted diseases.

 

 

The second is looking at using and meeting people on social media. Trading standards will be leading the first two sessions looking at the different scams that people may encounter online and also on the doorstep. The third session will be looking at the etiquette of using the technology and the fourth session will look at feelings when using social media.

Living Streets walk to school week 17-21 May 2021

Living Streets are having their Annual Walk to School week, encouraging all to make their way to school on foot.

May is the month of walking and there are many health benefits from walking, even for 10-20 minutes daily.

It is recommended that children of school age have at least 60 minutes of exercise a day. Walking to school will already set them on their way to achieve this goal and will help parents and carers with their fitness too!

For more information or to order a walk to school pack, visit here:
