Community Centre Survey

Now we are up and running with developing the community Centre we need to get an idea of how many people and organisations would be likely to use the centre, and for what purposes. We would be really grateful if you could complete our on-line survey. The results of this will demonstrate to funders that there is a real need – and to the community as a whole that we will be able to afford to run and maintain it. So please go to – and help us build a community centre in Chapelford.
