It is important to know that the survey was open to anyone who wished to fill it in on-line, not just those people who are in the Facebook Group. It was an online survey and we would like to conduct a paper survey as well if anyone is interested. At the moment we await the results of the M&P Observer's survey.
ps thank you Paul! ;-)
