Members of the public are being asked about the amount of physical activity they do and where they do it ,in a survey by Aberdeenshire Council.

A free membership to use council leisure facilities is up for grabs for anyone who takes part in the survey.

The questionnaire asks what people think of council facilities, if they are members, or if they might consider membership through the authority’s Active Aberdeenshire scheme.

The research forms part of the council’s Improving the Customer Experience (iCE) project that aims to improve customer service and satisfaction.

Chair of Aberdeenshire Council’s Education, Learning and Leisure Committee Councillor Isobel Davidson said: “The survey will look at how well the council responds to community needs and demand.

“There is a real intention to look at the responses with regard to opening times and programming and make changes if required and with a free membership up for grabs I encourage everyone to get involved.”

It’s important that people become more active.

Vice chair Councilllor Ron McKail added: “It is important that people become more active and by understanding what people do already and how the council can support this it’s a winning situation.”

A prize of one year’s individual Active Aberdeenshire adult membership or six months family membership (whichever suits) could be won by those who wish to register their contact details at the end of the survey.
