The first Consultation exercise consisted of two Open Days at the Mission Hall, plus a Consultation Newsletter with a pro-forma for people to return. 66 people attended the Open Days. 75 pro-formas were returned.

The raw data from these two exercises can be found here:

A subgroup was delegated to analyse this data. This subgroup performed keyword analysis to identify how often particular topics came up among the responses - the result of this analysis is contained in the attached spreadsheet. Based on this analysis, a Consultation 1 Report was produced, identifying the key issues that had been raised. Feedback on this Consultation was provided to the village by means of presentation material at the Coffee Morning on 3rd March and also by means of a third Newsletter.
