Altogether 53 young people in the 12-17 age range
responded to the questionnaire, 20 girls and 33 boys.
Most of those responding attended Reepham High School.
The main leisure time activities for females were
seeing friends and listening to music, whilst for males
it was seeing friends and playing computer games. In
general the boys were involved in a wider spread of
activities than the girls.
about what other activities they would be interested in
the top three were attending a youth club
playing tennis and going
swimming. The majority of the young people travelled to
get to their activities and were most likely to be taken
there by their parents.
people were also asked to evaluate some facilities in
the village - the Playing
Field, the Bowls Club and the
Overall girls tended to be more critical of the
facilities than the boys. The Playing Field received the
highest accolade, the Bowls dub next and then the
Village Hall. However, even here the. Village Hall
received massive support from the boys, though rather
less from the girls.

ABOUT THE CAWSTON PARISH PLAN
is a Parish Plan?
The Cawston Parish Plan will set out the
wishes of residents about the future of our area. Other local villages
that have produced Parish Plans include Reepham and Taverham. It is being
produced by a group of volunteers in the village and funding has come
mostly from Broadland District Council, but thanks are also due to Cawston
Parish Council for its support.
The main source of information for the plan
will be this questionnaire and the results will be published along with an
Action Plan for the village. Everyone is welcome to play a part.
Whatís the point?
A parish plan provides support to develop
community projects and environmental improvements. District and County
Councils refer to these plans when making decisions, and respond more
positively to proposals that are backed up by this sort of survey.
Whose opinions do we want?
Everybody living in the parish of Cawston
should have the opportunity to fill in a questionnaire. There is a
separate one for youth and one for teenagers. The junior questionnaire
will be filled in at the primary school. The adult questionnaires may be
filled in by any adult in the household. If more than one person wants to
represent their views this can be done on a separate form, or in a
different coloured ink on the same form. (Please feel free to request
another form, copy this one or download one from the Cawston Parish
Where are the questionnaires coming from ?
The questions have been developed by a
group of Cawston residents and the questionnaires are being delivered by
volunteers by hand.
These questionnaires will be collected one
week after they have been delivered.
Filling in the questionnaire
Please fill in as many questions as you can
and if you donít have enough room for your answers please use a separate
sheet of paper if there are more things you want to say.
After the public meeting held on
April 8th attended by around twenty five people, it was agreed to proceed
with a group that would assist with the organization of the work towards
producing a village plan.
first meeting was held on Tuesday 8th April 2007, attended by ten
people. The group discussed different ways to approach people in Cawston
to ascertain their views on what was required in Cawston. The meeting
considered Parish Plans produced by other councils and the range and
scope of the possible questions.
were also suggested for contacting people who might not normally
participate in such an exercise.

questionnaire for discussion at the next meeting which will be held on
Tuesday April 29th at the Scout Hut starting at 7.30pm.
