NGAGE, the community organisation and volunteer Centre for Thurrock are encouraging people who live or work in Purfleet to take part in a survey about providing a new Community Hub for the area.
The Hub will provide a new way for residents to work side by side with public services, local businesses and the voluntary sector to create a new type of delivery that puts local people in the driving seat. This will enable the local community to access services differently and allow people to do more for themselves without relying on stator provision.
ngage would like to encourage people to take part to ensure that they have their say on the activities they would like to see within the hub and to suggest a name.
Annette Lewis, Community worker for ngage said “With the help of local volunteers, we are visiting Purfleet on a weekly basis to speak to as many people as we can. We are keen to find out the type of information or advice that people find hard to get locally, and if they would like to become more involved in the hub.
People can take part either online or by picking up a survey and putting it in one of the drop boxes located at the Purfleet Children’s Centre, St Stephens Church, Dave’s Chemist, The Fleet, Coach House cafÃ© at the Royal Opera House, and Johns on the Garrison.
Anybody who completes and returns the survey by Monday 18th April will be entered in a draw with the chance to win Â£50 worth of shopping vouchers. To take part in the online survey go to: www.thurrockcvs.org.uk or www.ngagethurrock.org.uk. Contact ngage on 01375 389893 for more information.
