Survey on the Future Use of the Dobbie Hall

The Dobbie Hall and Rotary Hall are one of the central meeting points for the Larbert and Stenhousemuir community. The Halls are an important part of the community’s heritage and are maintained and developed by The Dobbie Hall Trust. The Trust is keen to give the wider community the opportunity to have a say in the future planning of services, activities, and events at the Halls. Therefore, they have commissioned Community Enterprise Ltd. to carry out a community wide consultation in order to inform the way forward and future development of the Halls. 

 

As a part of the consultation we have designed this brief survey to gather your views. We would greatly appreciate if you could spare 5-10 minutes to complete this survey. If you have any questions, please contact Chelsea on 01506 862 227 or at chelsea@communityenterprise.co.uk.  Please note the Survey closes on 2nd October 2015.   Thank you.
