The Glapwell Centre Survey

We have been proud to be home to REAL Education at The Glapwell Centre for many years, helping them provide educational opportunities in the community. At the beginning of the year REAL announced that they will be moving into their own premises and Glapwell Parish Council want to wish them all the best.

This now means we are in the position to make changes to the building itself and to the services it can offer to the community. This will be even more important given the current situation and what Glapwell village will need as we come out of the pandemic. To help us we would be very grateful for as many people as possible to fill in this short survey. It will only take approximately 2 minutes and will give you the chance to tell us what you would like to see at The Glapwell Centre.

The survey can be accessed on this link:
