2021 Census

Postcard of Post Office St

So the National Census is upon us again. It only happens every ten years, and March 21st is the date for this year’s forms to be filled in. It occuured to us at BH that there could be a whole generation of young people out there who will never have encountered this before, so we have published an article; https://www.bishopsteigntonheritage.co.uk/events/2021-census/  that helps to explain the purpose and the form of the census. It incorpoates a quiz, and some videos and a fun chance for kids to build their own census. We hope that parents and grandparents will show them the article and get them involved. Take a look and have fun with it this weekend.
