Diary of events updated for 2011

November 29, 2010

We’ve updated the diary of events to show the new schedule – it can be found by going to the Diary item on the black menu strip above, and on the dropdown clicking Diary Of Events or by clicking here.

The diary now shows parish council, AGM and annual parish meeting times and dates, cutoff points for submission to the Membury Mercury (including the upcoming spring centenary edition) and some ever popular plays, outings and parties.

If you have any updates, please let David Dodd know.

Help tomorrow take shape

November 20, 2010

On 27 March 2011 all residential households in the United Kingdom will be taking part in a census. Since 1801 a day has been chosen every ten years for this purpose. The census provides an excellent source of information about the population. This enables central and local government, health authorities and many other organisations to plan housing, education, health and transport services for years to come.

The census statistics feed into the allocation of funding for local authorities and play a major part in their ability to provide local services, so it is crucial the population estimate is as accurate as possible. When the questionnaire envelope comes through the door you’ll easily recognise it by the purple 2011 Census logo. Take care of it. If, like many people, you want to complete the questionnaire online, your individual internet code is on the front of the questionnaire.

The 2011 Census doesn’t want anyone to fall behind – so there is a wide range of help options available (such as language guidance booklets, large print format, Text Relay and census field staff on hand, as well as online help and telephone call centres).

More information about the 2011 Census can be found at: www.census.gov.uk
