Sonning Neighbourhood Plan
Spring Questionnaire 2021
We've received responses from over half the homes in the Parish! Currently a total of 354 completed questionnaires.
We'd sincerely like to thank all of you who have taken time to read and complete our rather long but worthwhile survey. And if there are any of our residents who still have to get their form to us then please don't delay - it's not too late but please do it soon.
You can discover more information about the Plan and the results of our survey (once they've been determined) can be found here: Sonning Neighbourhood Plan
After many months of development we now have a questionnaire that will be delivered to all Sonning residents before the end of April. It's good timing since it coincides with the easing of lockdown and our distribution team will be able to deliver it by hand and, if the opportunity arises, have a chat with people about how important this is to the future of our Parish and why we really need every resident aged 16+ years to complete a questionaire.
Sonning Support, is the new name for what was the Sonning Covid-19 Community Support Group, originally set up by the Sonning Parish Council in March 2020. They are an independant, informal group of local volunteers who joined together to provide help and support to those people who need it during these unprecedented times. If you need help in collecting a prescription from the chemist, buying food from the shops, walking a dog or other errands then do get in touch - click on the link above to contact them.
Volunteers do not expect payment for their time - the beneficiary is only expected to pay the cost of their shopping, prescriptions or other such expenses that they would cover normally.
If you have any concerns or queries please contact Trefor Fisher via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or 07789 880072.
