Steering group meeting cancelled

Today's meeting is cancelled, since there is no new information to be reported upon, apart from the continued slow rate of return on completed questionnaires.

Evidently the timing of the issue of the questionnaires over a half term week was far from propitious, and the news story published was not followed up by broadcast media because KK was not available to respond to calls, and no fall back contact was utilised. This will have to be considered carefully ahead of a next attempt to publicise the project.

It will be necessary for Steering Group members to chase up non-respondents in order to improve the return rate. RJT will organise this, and the deadline for accepting returns extended into the New Year, with the aim of raising the return rate from 30 to 40%.

The next Steering Group meeting will be towards the end of January.
