Community Journalism Survey

Hi my name is Samantha Ridley and I am a third year journalism student at the University of Cumbria. I am currently working on my dissertation which is based around the topic of community journalism. I would really appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to fill out a very quick survey.

Electric Vehicle Charging in Alston

Cybermoor is setting up a new social enterprise called Charge my Street to install and operate electric vehicle (EV) charging points around the County.  Unfortunately, Alston missed out on the Cumbria County Council fast chargers that were installed last year in most parts of the County such as Penrith, Carlisle, Kendal and Keswick.  As more people drive EVs, chargepoints will become more important, both for visitors to Alston and local residents.   Please complete our survey by 25th January....

Last chance to win £50 of shopping vouchers!

Researchers from University of Aberdeen are working in conjunction with Cybermoor on a market research project. They would like to know about your use of the internet for a range of activities, as well as an evaluation of the internet service you currently access at either your home or business.

As a thank you for participating in the survey, all respondents will be entered into a raffle to win £50 gift vouchers to spend at a local business.
