National Civic Day this year will be on Saturday 23rd June. As part of the celebrations Marple Civic Society will be taking part in a "national civic pride survey" called Civicwatch organised by Civic Voice, the new national charity for the civic movement.
Civic Voice is campaigning to re-awaken the nation's consciousness to the importance of being "civic". Being civic is about being active in your local area, be it by voting on election day, campaigning to stop innapropriate developments or signing a petition. Civicwatch is the civic movement's annual contribution to finding out how "civic" and how proud we all are of where we live - our towns, villages and cities. The results from Civicwatch are used locally by each civic group and by Civic Voice to capture the "state of the civic nation".
Civicwatch is a "3 question survey" conducted annually on Civic Day.
Civicwatch will ask:
1. Are you proud of where you live?
2. Do you feel part of your local community?
3. Do you feel as though your voice is listened to?
Local civic societies will invite people during Civic Day to fill in the survey and then use the results to produce a local picture of "civicness" in their area. Civic Voice will analyse the results on a national level and prepare the national publicity.
Civic Society members and friends will be out in Marple on Civic day asking people to complete the survey. However anyone can take part by completing the survey on-line by clicking on the link below: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2ZYNPZQ
N.B. Survey questions 5, 6 and 8 are optional. Don't forget to click on the "Done" button after completing the survey.
Please help us to achieve a good response from Marple by completing the survey.Posted on behalf of Marple Civic Society.
