Budget Proposal Feedback Forms

Can I just remind everyone who has a Budget Proposal Feedback Form to
return them to the CAP (Library), that it doesn’t need to be during opening
hours and that no envelope is needed.

There is no personal information required to identify you and the CAP has
a letterbox you can put it through.
To date, approx. 200 forms have been handed out and only TWO returned.

Please do your best to return them in during this coming week as all the
data has to be entered online for you by the end of the month.

If at all possible, please click on the link below to give your feedback online.

Thank You
