The countdown is on for young people and local businesses to have their say in two easy online surveys that will help to shape the future of King’s Lynn.
If you’re 16-25, now is the time to add your voice to the growing number of young people who have already shared their views on what they’d like to see in the town, what is missing, plus their thoughts on career opportunities in King’s Lynn. And, respondents can also enter a prize draw to win shopping vouchers: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/72MFRQQ
Local business owner Harry Seaton, 24-year-old Managing Director of Fluential, is encouraging young people to share their unique perspectives. He said:
“It's definitely tough, as a young person, to feel like you have a voice in decisions as important as spending millions of pounds on renovating the town, but this is not just a box to be ticked, which is why I am asking for your help. It takes no time at all plus you could win one of six £50 high street vouchers.”
At the same time, a survey is running especially for business owners, people thinking of setting up on their own, or individuals who are looking to take a hobby to the next stage to share their thoughts on pop-up spaces for the town: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/7CQ8NJX
Vicky Etheridge, Manager of Discover King’s Lynn explained:
“Pop-up spaces present an exciting opportunity for budding businesses to showcase their work and get ideas off the ground, and for established businesses to try out a new product or service. And, we know from public feedback that there is a desire to see these spaces in town.
“To develop these spaces, we want to hear the views of businesses and potential traders, and listen to them to understand their requirements, and what type of spaces they would like to see in the future.”
People wishing to take part in the surveys have just a few days to give their views as the closing date for both surveys is 5pm on Sunday 24 October 2021 . Vision King's Lynn will be announcing more ways for the public to get involved shortly.
