Who was Involved?
THE VOICES TEAM
The team that made up the VOICES Steering Group came from volunteers who offered their services following the Public Meeting which started the project off in February 2011.

Joining the team for some of the time but having to withdraw for personal or business reasons:
The Steering Group was joined by Councillor Jeremy Smith in 2014 as the Wittersham Parish Council representative.
THE DISCUSSION GROUPS
The five Discussion Groups were constituted in November/December 2014. They were formed from volunteers who had indicated their willingness to be part of the project. The size of the Groups was not prescribed. The Groups chose their own Leader. A member of the VOICES Steering Group was assigned to each Group to provide guidance if required – not to ensure any perceived “party line” was followed.
The Groups were as follows:

TRANSPORT AND SAFETY:
The Rev Judy Darkins Leader
*Jennifer Maynard/Kathy Howard
ENVIRONMENT AND HOUSING:
Sean Sargent Leader
SOCIAL, SPORT, RECREATION AND AMENITIES :
George Parkin Leader
The Groups were supplied with the results from the General Survey to guide their thoughts along the path that the Community had chosen. This did not preclude discussion on allied matters. Ideas and thoughts which were triggered by the questions in the survey and the responses received had an important part to play in producing the overall Plan.
Each Group submitted its conclusions, in whatever form it wished, to the VOICES Steering group for their views before they were placed into the overall Community Led Plan.. The Group submissions will be found in the Findings of the Groups page.
