You may remember that a day or two ago we said that we’d just found a questionnaire on the borough council’s website that asked for views about a possible skating rink in Camberley this Christmas. We did admit that we didn’t know how long the questionnaire had been there, and whether there is/was a deadline for responses. But several helpful people quickly told us that a similar questionnaire – on paper – had been available at the Christmas lights switch on last year.
So, we checked with the council, and those helpful people were right. (Our followers are always right, of course.) In fact, the on-line questionnaire went live at about the same time as the paper version. At the moment it’s ‘sleeping’ on the website, but it’s ready to be woken up if/when appropriate. But responses are apparently welcome at any time So what we’d written was a few months late, but still relevant.
We did chuckle, however. Only a matter of hours after we’d published our late-but-still-relevant item, a local society – which had better be nameless to spare its blushes! – e-mailed its members with remarkably similar information. But it added that the questionnaire related to the London Road Recreation Ground (which isn’t necessarily the case) and that the questionnaire might only be available during this month. Which doesn’t appear to be the situation. Tut tut!
