The Hilton Area Neighbourhood Development Plan Survey, “Your Village Your Voice”, offered 3 cash prizes available to any resident who left their contact details on their response. It was a simple incentive to encourage people to engage in the process. This was open until 31 July 2018 when the survey ended.
Of the 928 people who responded, 559 people entered their details into the draw.
On the 2nd August 2018, the prize draw was made at the Hilton House Hotel with the help of Donna Harrison who is an employee in the hotel. To keep the process transparent we followed each step with Donna present:
- The details of all respondents was downloaded into a spreadsheet from Survey Monkey ( this included all paper responses which had been keyed in previously)
- Those not wishing to partake were excluded from the number count
- Donna ran the Excel random number generator on 3 occasions which gave us the line number of the winners. The first one being the £100 prize.
All 3 winners were contacted and a small awards event was arranged for 3rd September at the Village Hall. The winners were:
Alistair Hindmarsh (£100)
Frances Paine (£50)
Caroline Ball (£50)
Once again, thanks to all who participated and gave us their views.
