The council’s resident engagement team gained more than 320 completed feedback forms on an important local project with arts, crafts and sports activities for people to take part in at the event.
The community were sharing what they would want to see in the designs for a potential new Paulsgrove community centre and library. The council also wanted to hear from residents about how the sports pitches could be best used.
Cabinet Member for Housing and Preventing Homelessness, Cllr Darren Sanders, said: “It was great to have a huge number of people come down to enjoy the party and to give us their thoughts for the future of the community centre and library. Having 320 sets of views collected on one day from the people who will actually use the services is a great boost.”
A number of local charities and community groups had a presence at the event, as well as council teams signposting people to local services and information.
