A SURVEY is being carried out to find out what Halton residents know about culture and leisure in the borough.

Halton Council says the research will help them to plan for the future.

The questionnaire asks people what they know about visitor attractions in Widnes and Runcorn, where they choose to spend their leisure time and how far they are prepared to travel.

The survey takes about five minutes to complete and runs until December 21.

There will be a prize picked at random from the completed surveys received. This will be tickets for a family of four to attend the forthcoming Brindley panto.

Halton Cllr Eddie Jones, board member visitor economy, said: “It is really important that we hear the views of our own residents about the wealth of attractions they have on their doorstep.

“The results of the survey are key to informing us how and where we can better promote these.”
