Thank You for your help
The Maryburgh Community Woodland Group have now assessed all the responses from the community regarding the Woodland questionnaire. The Woodland Group would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete either the paper or online form. This help will allow us to develop a management plan for the woodland, which we will be working on over the next few months.
All the questionnaires returned were fed into a database and then the tick box questions 1, 2 and 4 were extracted into a spreadsheet for analysis. Questions 3 and 5 were analysed and uploaded to a Word Cloud to summarise the results.
A total of 48 questionnaires were completed. Paper copies of the questionnaire were distributed around the village and 28 of those were returned. One copy was downloaded from the website and filled in. The other 19 forms were filled in online. The final results are shown below:
Woodland Questions one and two
|How often do people use the woods
|How many people walk their dog
Question three – What do you value in the woodland?
All the individual items that people value were summarised with the following words. The larger the word is in the following Word Cloud the more times it was mentioned by people.
|a) Make the woodland safe
|b) Make the woodland accessible
|c) Protect and enhance the biodiversity
Question five – Do you have any suggestion which could enhance the community use of the woodland?
All the suggestions were summarised with the following words. The more people that mentioned an item means that particular item is displayed larger in the Word Cloud.
