The sun shone for the Liskeard Show on Saturday and everywhere there were hordes of people enjoying themselves. The organisers must have been very pleased to see their hard work and organisation paying off so well.
It was wonderful to see so many people at the Liskeard Town Team stand (the picture shows just a few of them) – filling in the questionnaires, getting information about the big clean up, signing up to be involved in lots of different ways, doing the town centre quiz, buying bags and badges and talking to us.
We received over 150 completed questionnaires. These will now be analysed to help us understand more about how people use the town at the moment, how they see Liskeard and to what extent they feel involved in the community. It’s a great start – and there will be more opportunities for people to give their views both online and at other events. It will all feed into our planning and the work on Liskeard’s identity.
There was a prize draw for people completing the questionnaire and we can announce the lucky winners! J Bickle won the hamper of food kindly donated by the Co-op and the three Love Liskeard bags were won by Sue Batten, Tony Hill and Nicola Worley. Congratulations to them and many thanks to everyone who took the time to fill in questionnaires or just to come and see us.
Also many thanks to all those volunteers who helped with the preparation for the stall and who helped on the day – you were a great team! We very much appreciated the loan of the display stands from Volunteer Cornwall and the lovely big map produced by Cornwall Council.
