I can honestly say I have been receiving an increased amount of emails following my recent postings. I would like to thank those who have sent in "missing" items concerns.
I have also received a cultural survey that I have been asked to forward to those of you who care about a culture led regeneration in Margate.
Dear Community Group ,
Uwe Derksen, a research student at the University of Kent, is conducting research into public perceptions of Margate and Folkestone, with particular reference to culture-led regeneration. He has developed an on-line questionnaire, which can be completed in reference to either town and is aimed at those who live and/or work in either Margate or Folkestone.
I would be very grateful if you could distribute the link to this survey to your members, so that they can complete it:
I've pasted the introduction to the survey below, to give an idea of what it covers.
Thank you for participating in this research and your interest in completing this survey. The online questionnaire should only be completed by you, if you live, work, or live and work in either Folkestone or Margate. The questionnaire has a number of questions about how you perceive the town relevant to you. I am interested in your views about Folkestone or Margate, about the cultural offer in each, and the benefits it may have for the towns. The questionnaire therefore has a number of questions relating to your awareness of the cultural offer in the town relevant to you and your perception of the town. For the study it is important to gather views from a wide range of people who live and/or work in the towns. The survey therefore has a number of questions relating to you and your circumstances. The research is conducted by Uwe Derksen, a research student at the University of Kent.
The survey is completely anonymous; the personal identity of respondees, won't be known. The questionnaire will be available from February 2013 to April 2013. Thank you for participating in this research by completing the online questionnaire, which should take no longer than 20 minutes. Please note that there are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers.
Please let me know if you would like any further information about the survey or the research,
Very many thanks and Best wishes,
