We recently carried out a lockdown survey of our readers, asking them to answer 25 questions about the current situation.
This week we are running a number of stories looking at various aspects of the results that came out of the survey.
Yesterday we revealed how lockdown has affected those who took part in the survey and what their biggest concerns are.Today we are focusing on what Scarborough's people are most looking forward to post-lockdown, according to the results of the poll.
Those who took part in the survey were able to choose any number of the following options:
- attending sports events
- eating out and going to pubs/bars
- going to the barber/hairdresser
- going for beauty treatments
- going to the cinema/theatre/live music etc
- going for days out at leisure attractions
- going on holidays/trips
- going shopping
- playing sport/going to the gym/exercise classes
62% of The Scarborough News readers said they were looking forward to eating out and going to pubs/bars, followed by going on holidays/trips which 60% of readers opted for.
The third most popular option was going to the barber/hairdresser which 51% of people said they were looking forward to.
The least popular option was attending sports events.
Our survey also asked people to choose up to three areas of everyday life they were looking forward to from the following options:
- enjoying the outdoors again
- going back to their place of work
- seeing family
- socialising with friends
- their children going back to school again
The most popular options with our respondents were: seeing family with 72%; socialising with friends with 55%, enjoying the outdoors again with 41%, going back to their place of work with 17% and their children going back to school again with 12%.
Today and tomorrow The Scabrorough News will be revealing more results from our lockdown survey.
