Wednesday 21st October 2015

javeamigos.com | JAVEA NEWS · ONLINE SURVEY - LORETO

Almost 250 people took part in the special survey commissioned by the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia which asked residents to rate as well as offer opinions and suggestions about the fiestas which honour Mare de Déu de Loreto in the port during the late summer. Councillor Antonio Miragall (Fiesta) presented the results alongside councillor Ximo Segarra (New Technologies and Transparency) and Juanjo García, president of the Fiesta Commission which organises the celebrations each year.

In the online survey, which was available in Castellano, Valenciano and English, residents were asked to rate eleven different aspects of the fiesta from "Very Good", "Good", "Acceptable", "Bad" and "Very Bad". They were also given the chance to make their own suggestions and express their specific opinions about the celebrations, all of which the organisers have pledged will be taken into consideration when organising future editions of the fiesta.

The aspects which were rated included an overall appraisal of the event, the duration, the quality of the games and sporting events, of the children's events and of the concerts and cultural events as well as the controversial but extremely popular "bous a la mar" with its unique bar experience and the iconic firework display and other pyrotechnic acts. Also included was the chance of appraise to work of the Fiesta Commission which organises and supervises the celebrations as well as the work of the councillor responsible for the Department of Fiestas at the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia.

The results, which are shown below, returned a general approval by the majority of the respondents whilst the work of the Fiesta Commission, the "bous a la mar" and the firework display were rated as "Very Good".

With regards to general suggestions and complaints, it became clear that the sensitivity towards the use of animals in these celebrations is on the increase and several respondents questioned the practice. There was also a request for an increase of cultural events and concerts whilst there were calls to bring an end to the early morning "despertaes" - the noisy wake up calls - the mobile discos.

Councillor Toni Miragall (Fiestas) explained that the survey opened a new path of dialogue which the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia wants to continue to improve the fiestas of Xàbia and encourage all the residents feel that they can participate comfortably. Councillor Ximo Segarra added that they online survey is a new initiative but he is confident that it can be used as a reference for opinions on other aspects concerning the municipality, not just for the fiestas.

A second online survey of the popular Fogueres de Sant Joan de Xàbia which takes place every June, undoubtedly the biggest party of the year, will be available very soon which will help its organising committee to understand the opinions and suggestions of the residents and consequently decide the content of future editions of the fiesta.
