27 responses were received to a survey
of all members in October 2020. The respondents were almost entirely retired people, who are interested mainly in civic matters and the history of the town. Although there is a strong desire to resume physical meetings and events once the covid pandemic is over, members are interested in having online events in the meanwhile. Many useful suggestions were made for topics and issues affecting the town. Key concerns were the needs to recruit younger members and to work more closely with the Town and District Councils. In summary
, the results of the Survey indicate an encouraging general endorsement of the aims of the Society. The full results
also provide food for thought as to new directions and ways of operating.
