The national campaign launches on Friday, February 12, followed by all households receiving notification of the census towards the end of February. Households will then receive their Census Unique Access Code in the first week of March. When households receive their access code, they can immediately complete their questionnaire online. Paper questionnaires can be requested - though some households (for example: in digitally deficient areas or where householders have been noted as elderly) will automatically receive a paper questionnaire. Homecarer's guidance, answers to questions and a timeline are attached.
Due to lockdown, there will be many people who want to support friends, families or individuals who are isolated or shielding in their communities. There is a Census Support Line which will be fully operational through and beyond March. However, should a 'trusted friend or carer' want to support an individual that is possible too.

WCC Children’s Services
In the event a single parent finding themselves in difficulty with no provision of care for their children – e.g. if they have to go into hospital as a COVID-19 emergency, WCC will help parents and try and locate family members and connected others, friends etc who may be able to help.
If not and there are no other options WCC will step in and provide care. WCC sometimes have such situations normally where a single parent needs to go into hospital and has no support network that can help and would provide a similar service in these circumstances.
Out of these hours if you have an emergency contact the emergency duty team on 01926 886922. If you think that a child is at immediate risk, contact the police immediately on 999
It has come to the attention of the parish council that some parishioners (and councillors!) find it frustrating how long it can take for projects to be completed and concerns discussed by the parish council. Unfortunately the parish council is restricted by many rules and regulations that slow things down and the frustration is felt by all.
The parish council would like to try to reduce this frustration for everyone and the best way we can do this is to try to ensure that parishioners and councillors are aware of the basic rules we have to follow and try to work with them.
