Welcome to the Church of the Holy Cross.

Some questions about Woodingdean Community Resource Hub

Dear Friend,

We're writing to you from the Woodingdean Community Hub and church. You might know that the Hub has been providing various activities, including the Woodingdean food bank, for some time. We're pleased to have helped many people in Woodingdean and would like to find out how we can help our community to stay well and healthy in other way. Could you spare a few minutes to let us know how we could serve you best?

You can either drop off your questionnaire in the box in the church entrance at 2 Downsway, Woodingdean, Brighton BN2 6BD, (more copies of the questionnaire will also be available there), or email your responses to us at [email protected]

Please also read the information at the end of the questionnaire before answering, it tells you what happens to the information you provide.

1.We are keen to promote your wellbeing in Woodingdean, can you say what keeps you well and healthy?

2.What activities would you be interested in at Woodingdean hub and why?

3.We are interested in creating a museum of stories at the Hub gathered from all sorts of different people in our community. We'd love for you to tell your story. Would you be willing to explore this with us?

Information sheet for people filling out the questionnaire

Please take a minute to read this information, which explains why we would like to ask you some questions.

We are members of the Parochial Church Council (PCC) at Woodingdean Holy Cross. The PCC wants to find out how to serve the community best, in order to apply for grant funding to make sure our buildings and outside spaces can deliver these services. We are asking you some questions as we would like to understand what activities might service you best.

Participation is entirely optional. The questionnaires will be completed anonymously; please don't write your name on the sheet if you are using a paper copy. Because they are anonymous, once the questionnaires are collected, it will not be possible to withdraw your comments.

If you are under the age of 16 please ask your parent/guardian before completing the questionnaire.

Your answers to the questionnaire will be looked at to see if there are any themes. These themes will be shared in summary form with members of the Parochial Church Council (PCC). We may use some quotes from questionnaires to help show the grant funders what people want, but these will always be anonymous.

If you have any further questions about the questionnaire please discuss with Philippa Parsons: [email protected] 07876 404004

By completing this questionnaire, you are indicating your willingness to be involved in our project. It is important that you understand this and are happy to participate. Thank you for your help.
