Ogwell community shop survey

Community Shop Survey data and summary of responses:
There were 352 responses out of what we’ve previously heard to be about 1,230 households in the parish. This equates to 28.6% and although similar such surveys can average around 33%, according to the Plunkett Foundation information we have seen, the percentage is normally in the low 20s. So we had a good response.
