National Civic Day 2013

The Society celebrated National Civic Day on the 22nd June by conducting the Civic Day Survey in Marple shopping centre, canvassing support for our campaign for an independent public realm study into traffic and pedestrian flow as part of the new Chadwick Street foodstore project and tested public opinion on our proposal for a Heritage Lottery funded project to mark the 100th anniversary next year of the start of WW1.  The survey results will be analysed and published here (alonside the national Civic Voice results) within the next few weeks.

We continued our Civic Day theme at the Marple Locks Heritage Society Festival on 30th June. We had an enjoyable and successful day speaking to lots of people and recruiting several new members.

Details of the Civicwatch survey and questionnaire can be found here
