Survey - Community Leisure Provision - Survey Now Closed

Selby District AVS have been commissioned by the Tadcaster and Villages CEF to research Community Leisure Provision, which involved a survey for residents in the area to complete. This will help the CEF Partnership Board to gather views on existing provision, along with what they would like to see in the future. Further details, along with the online survey, can be found here.

Any completed surveys not yet returned should be sent to Tadcaster Town Council, The Ark, 33 Kirkgate, Tadcaster, LS24 9AQ. The survey closed on 7 May. Thank you for taking part.
