From HM Government – 2021 Census:

Households across Corton Denham will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.

The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.

It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets.

Census day will be on March 21, but households across the country will receive letters with online codes allowing them to take part from early March.

The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. And, for the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Results will be available within 12 months, although personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations.

For more information, visit census.gov.uk.

Please remember the Countryside Code:

‘Keep dogs on a lead at all times near farm animals – by law you’re obliged to keep your dog under control so they don’t disturb animals or wildlife.’ 


Reminder – Dog Fouling:

A person in charge of a dog, whether they are the owner or not, must clean up after their dog has fouled in a public place. Failure to do so may lead to a fine or prosecution in court.

The SSDC advice to dog-walkers is always to carry ‘poo’ bags and dispose of bags in a dog or litter bin. Not disposing a ‘poo’ bag correctly is also a dog fouling and littering offence.
