Your Views on Sustainable Witney

May 21st, 2016

Over the past few years Sustainable Witney has helped its local community to save waste from landfill, revitalise pre-loved clothing, educate on subjects such as gardening, food and energy efficiency for your home, promote green travel choices and encourage responsible consumption.

Our small team of organisers and trusted volunteers are always looking to improve what we do and we’re currently reviewing our priorities, activities and the links we have with our members, followers and partners. We’d like to gather your views and experiences so later in the year we can run a public event to share ideas for new initiatives to meet our core aim of ‘making life simple’ in the community of Witney.

Your feedback is valuable which is why we’ve created a basic questionnaire. Click here to access. It should only take a few minutes to complete.


Responses will only be collected until June 3rd and all data will be used in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.


Thank you for your continued support.
