Speak up for Ubin

Focus Ubin is conducting a survey on what people think of Ubin.

This is your chance to share what you love about Ubin and what you forsee to be its future. Help shape the future developments on Ubin today.

Results of the survey will be compiled and submitted to the authorities at the end of 2005 to show there are people who are interested in Ubin and what their hopes are for Ubin. The survey will be closed after a year of collecting feedback in October 2005.

Let your voices be heard!

Focus Ubin survey

Everytime the Pedal Ubin guides bring our participants around on Ubin, our objective is to show the sights, sounds, nature and heritage of the island and share what many of us love and have grown to treasure about Ubin. However, most of the time, the only voices heard out there are complaints. The agencies involved would not know that there are people appreciative of Ubin and its tresures if we do not speak up and voice our appreciation for keeping Ubin the way it is.

One thing I have learnt is that we all need encouragements. If and when the authorities are doing the right thing, they need encouragement too. They need to know our support.

This is a really good chance to let them know the positive things we like about what they are doing and positive things we hope they are doing. To date, about 10-15 people a month drop by to do the survey and share how they feel about Ubin.

So what are you waiting for? Don't shy! *grin*
