SECTION 1

(K = Katie; R = resident)

K: Hi, good afternoon sir, er … excuse me! Could you spare a minute please?

R: Oh, hello. Sorry, I was in a world of my own … I didn’t hear you there.

K: No problem. My name’s Katie and I’m a second year sociology student. We’re doing a research project on the importance of community centres to local residents . May I ask, are you a resident of Molton?

R: Yes, I am.

K: That’s perfect. Would you mind answering some questions about the facilities you use? It won’t take very long…

R: Of course, I’d be happy to answer any questions you have. far !

K: Great! OK. the first questions are to do with you. So can I ask how old you are? We need to know for statistical purposes later.

R: Well, I’d like to say 16 but I’m 59, 60 next week in fact.

K: Congratulations for next week! Now I just need your postcode, and then we’ll get started.

R: Right, well that’s an easy one. It’s HA8 .

K: 7-A-8 … H-Q-P, was that right?

R: No my dear, it’s H-A-8-7-U-P.

K: Right… OK. Sorry for the confusion.

R: That’s quite alright. Now what about these questions?

K: Yes, let’s get started … So one of the most important things we need to know is which of the facilities you already use.

R: Right OK.

K: OK, what about computer facilities? Do you currently use public computers anywhere in town?

R: Yes. I do. I go to my local library.

K: Great,… just jotting that down. OK, what about local sports facilities?

R: Yes, I get down to the swimming pool at least twice a week.

K: And education facilities? Are you currently attending any courses?

R: Yes, I go to Spanish classes every Friday at the further education college.

K- That’s great! I must say, you’re very active.

K: OK, we’re halfway through. The next bit is all about how the community centre could be improved , if at all, that is.

R: I see. Well, I’ll give it a go!

K: Well firstly, I’d like to find out your views on sports facilities. Which sports do you think the community centre should offer that it doesn’t already?

R: Mmm… Well, I’m not going to say swimming as there’s no point having two pools in a town of this size. Let me think … um, what, about yoga? I know it’s very popular these days. Yes, yoga and badminton. I used to play you know.

K: Really?

R: Yes, and I was quite good though I’m probably a bit rusty now. It’s been years.

K: OK, do you think the classes should be split into groups?

R: Yes, that’s a good idea. I know that if there were classes only for pensioners. I’d definitely be more likely to play. I’m not a fast as I once was, you know.

K: OK, I’ll just write that, down … Great! Now, we’re nearly done. I just need to ask you some questions about education. What kind of classes do you think the centre should offer that it doesn’t already?

R: Well, I suppose the kind of thing that’s no longer offered at the local college, em … things like arts and crafts. Those kinds of classes have now closed as they weren’t financially viable , apparently.

K: Yes, I heard about that. It was such a shame. Those kinds of classes are so important for the psychological well-being of those most vulnerable in a community. OK, I’ve written that down. Now, I need to ask you whether you would be willing to pay for any of the services we were just talking about.

R: Umm, as long as it wasn’t too much, I have nothing against contributing. Something like two pounds per class seems like a reasonable rate for an old man like me!

K: OK, era … and lastly then, I just need to know how regularly you think you will use the new facilities if the community centre makes the changes you have suggested.

R: Well, I’d say three times a week, which is more than I go at the moment. I only bother on Mondays and Wednesdays , as there’s nothing else on during the week that interests me. But I would definitely get out of the house more if they were to make those kinds of changes.
