The 2021 Census – The Office for National Statistics has asked for the following information to be passed on to residents
Households across Doncaster will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021. The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
Census day is Sunday 21 March 2021 and it will be the first to be run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets from early March.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) say:
The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. For the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Results will be available within 12 months, and personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations. For more information on how the census works and it can benefit our community visit www.census.gov.uk.
There are also full and part time job opportunities available in Doncaster, please see https://www.censusjobs.co.uk/ for more information and how to apply.

Doncaster Council is currently offering advice notices, at a cost, to post in open spaces throughout the Borough detailing the rules governing the use of drones in these areas.
Irrespective of whether notices are displayed, everyone should note that since July 2018, “You must not fly a Drone above 400 feet (120 metres) or within five kilometres (3 miles) of any airport or airport boundary” which means that drones should not be flown anywhere in Blaxton because of its proximity to the airport. If you do fly a drone you risk a fine or prosecution. If challenged, it is unlikely that compliance with all of the other rules governing drones would be a defence against a fine or prosecution. Please exercise care.
CAP (Community Alcohol Partnership) Launch
CAP is an initiative that was launched on 25th July with the aim of reducing underage drinking and drug use in our villages (Auckley, Branton, Blaxton, Cantley and Finningley) and associated anti-social behaviour. It is a multi-agency initiative involving SY Police, DMBC Youth Services and Officers, DMBC Ward Councillors, Parish Councils, local Stores, local youngsters and others who share the concerns.
In Finningley the problems occur mainly on the playing fields (teen shelter and children's play area) where some youngsters meet and behave inappropriately. They leave litter (not in the bins provided so they are liable to £150 fine), play loud music, and leave detritus that suggests they have access to alcohol and drugs.
The initiative has six aims:
The six-month programme is seen as "educational" rather than "enforcement" but it was made clear at the launch that enforcement is always an option.
