Taking part in sport and recreational activities is important to everyone's health and wellbeing, and in order to encourage uptake and participation in sports and recreational activities, Lowestoft Town Council are looking at how it can invest in and improve the facilities on offer.  Lowestoft Town Council already manage a number of different sport facilities (from a putting green to basketball courts and tennis courts) across Lowestoft which are all free-to-use.

Each section of this survey covers a number of sites in Lowestoft (all owned by Lowestoft Town Council) which have some sports facilities in them already and asks how often you use the existing facilities and what new facilities you would like at each site.  You are welcome to fill in as much or as little of the survey as you like (there are options to skip sections if you wish).

The survey will be open until Friday 5th April.

To complete the survey, please follow this link: https://forms.office.com/e/mMYZZfzHuM
