People who enjoyed the highly successful Lee Evans show or the recent series of films shown at the Assembly Hall, and those who enjoy the town’s Christmas Lights or the Food and Drink Festival, may not be aware that these are just some of the range of services provided or supported by the town council.
Now Melksham Town Council is asking local people what other services they would like to see being provided in order to keep Melksham ‘a great place to live, work and visit’.
Other services already provided by the council include the Melksham Assembly Hall, Allotments, Civic Service and Civic Awards, Grants, some bus shelters, bins and benches, Melksham In Bloom and the of course the beautiful town flowers, but the council now wants to hear from local people about how these services can be improved.
Miriam Zaccarelli, deputy town clerk said, “Residents are being asked how Melksham Town Council can improve its services to the public, and to identify the two best things about Melksham and two things that might be improved. We are also asked to say what events they would like to see in the town.”
Melksham Assembly Hall is specifically under the spotlight. People are asked to say how often they have visited the hall, what their experience of their visit was and they are invited to suggest ways that this experience might be improved.
The survey is hosted on myEnvolve.com, which allows people to enter their postcode to see decisions that are being made about their area which affect them, their lives, their families and their community in one place. They can then decide what they want to engage with and have their say on any of the hot topics locally, all from the comfort of their sofa.
To tell the council what you think about the services they provide, please go to www.myenvolve.com/project/melkshamsurvey14 The survey will only take one minute to complete and your views will be welcomed.
