Garden Waste and Bonfires – please be considerate to your neighbours

The weather is slowly getting better and we are now able to get out into our gardens.

Please remember to be consider your neighbours. Speak to your neighbours and check that their windows are closed.

Try to have your bonfire when the smoke does not blow across their house, garden or washing. Many people suffer from asthma and other ailments that are seriously effected by inhaling smoke.

Remember ash travels a long way on the air currents and can end up dropping on your neighbours lovely clean patio or burning their favourite roses.

With the best intentions the wind can change and bonfire smoke changes direction so just put the fire out.

Wet or new weeded plants make for a very smoky bonfire so wait till they are dry or if possible compost them and get free fertiliser for next year.


Pett Community Library

We are back!! Wednesday 14th April, 10 – 12. We have to continue outside, so let’s hope for fine weather. And please observe social distancing and other health rules. We so look forward to seeing you.

Census 2021 – complete your census as soon as you get it – more information too

The Office for National Statistics will shortly be carrying out the Census 2021 across England and Wales. Census Day is Sunday 21st March. After this day census officers will be:

  • knocking on doors following up non-responders,
  • helping the public with queries.

Letters from the census giving the Unique Access Code for online completion and the phone number (0800 141 2021) to get a paper form are being delivered, and should be received by 8th March 2021. A key message is to complete the census as soon as you can. Don’t delay. If people act quickly there’ll be nobody knocking on the door.

From 22nd March 2021 field census officers will be working across England and Wales. They have recruited around 29,000 members of staff to carry out home visits.

All field census officers will be carrying official identification cards. The card will have a photograph and the officer’s name. The officers will work through the day to make contact with residents but will NOT call before 09:00 or after 20:00. Any member of the public concerned that the person on their doorstep is not a census officer can call the number on the critical workers letter that the officer can show them.

Census officers will NEVER ask for any money or bank details at any point during the conversation with respondents.

Census staff in the field are classed as key workers. The law allows that where there is a lockdown people can leave their home for work if they cannot work from home. As their role cannot be carried out by working from home, they are allowed to carry out the duties of their role.

The health and safety of the public and the census field force is of the utmost importance. Field force routines in Census 2021 have been planned with the health and safety of both the public and field staff front and centre. All field census officers will work in a socially distanced way; they will all be wearing PPE and they will NOT enter anyone’s home.

The Office for National Statistics has several important studies and surveys continuing alongside the census (more details here). It is, therefore, possible that an address will be visited by staff working on other surveys too.

More information is also available at The number the public to call for general enquiries is 0800 141 2021. This will be open:

  • Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm
  • Saturday, 8am to 1pm
  • Sunday, closed.
