Don’t miss the Census bus when it stops in Southend!
Climb aboard the big purple bus in Southend this Friday 4th March to find out more about the forthcoming National Census on Sunday 27th March.
An expert Census team in this eye-catching vehicle is visiting a number of key towns including Southend, and is all geared up to answer your Census questions.
On Friday 4th March the purple bus will stop at Victoria Circus at the top end of Southend High Street near the Odeon Cinema between 10am and 12.15pm, and will then move further down the High Street outside Lloyds TSB between 1pm and 4pm.
Census Area Manager for Southend, Kevin Nason, said: “People can come along and have a chat with me and other members of the Census team onboard the bus to ask any questions they may have about the upcoming Census.”
The bus tour is also being supported by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council.
Council Leader Nigel Holdcroft said: “This Census is vitally important. If everyone fills in their Census form, then everyone in the borough will benefit. All kinds of future funding allocations for education, health, transport and many more public services are made on the basis of the National Census. It is essential Southend receives the funding and investment it is entitled to.
“We would also like to reassure everyone that the Census data is strictly confidential and individual details are not shared with other organisations or Government departments.
“We are very pleased to be working with the Census team and hope that anyone with any questions or worries about the Census will take the opportunity to visit the bus.”
The 2011 Census takes place on Sunday March 27. Questionnaires will begin dropping through letterboxes on Monday 7th March. It can be completed securely online via the census website at www.census.gov.uk or on paper and posted back in the pre paid envelope.
