Message from David Lyon Census Area Manager for the Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud and Tewkesbury.
"I would just like to thank all of you who have completed and returned their Census Questionnaires.
For those of you who haven’t, please do so as soon as possible. You can complete the Questionnaire online at www.census.gov.uk or on paper returning it in the prepaid envelop provided.
You need to take part so that services in your area – like schools, hospitals, housing, roads and emergency services – can be planned and funded for the future.
The census is compulsory, and if you don’t take part you could be fined up to £1,000.
Census Collectors have now started calling on households that have not completed Questionnaires.
If you require help with your Questionnaire please call the Census helpline on 0300 0201 101 or go online at www.census.gov.uk"
