LALG Annual Survey 2019 – Results

49% once a week or more; 27% once a month; 12% once in 3 months; 12% even less. Last year these figures were 32%; 37%; 9%; 22%

There is a continuing trend for respondents to make more frequent use of their membership with almost half participating at least weekly.
