Census 2021
12 March 2021

Census 2021

Census Day takes place on 21 March and Cornwall Council is encouraging everyone who identifies as Cornish to say it on the 2021 census.

You can find out more about the call to action to identify as Cornish here.

The number of people identifying as Cornish will help influence how services are planned and funded in Cornwall, and will also help provide information about how the Cornish are performing as a group across the country.

People in Cornwall and beyond who want to identify as Cornish on the Census will be able to do so by ticking the box marked ‘other’ under the nationality, ethnicity and language questions and then writing or typing in ‘Cornish’.

People will receive a pack and a code from the ONS which will allow them to go on line and complete the census.

Anyone who needs help completing their census form or who has not received a census form by 21 March 2021 should visit or ring the Census Contact Centre on 0800 141 2021. Language support is available via the language helpline on 0800 587 2021.

Royal Cornwall Showground to become COVID-19 vaccination site
30 January 2021

A second vaccination centre will open on the Royal Cornwall Showground in continuing to fight against the pandemic.

From Monday (1 February), the vaccination centre at Wadebridge will open to the most vulnerable in Cornwall.

The site opens a week after it was announced that Stithians Showground would become the first large scale vaccination centre in the continued roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Iain Davidson, clinical lead for the vaccination centres and hospital hub, and chief pharmacist at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “This is further good news for Cornwall. The opening of this second vaccination centre will mean we will be able to protect even more people.

“We will continue to vaccinate the most vulnerable based on the priority groups set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI). People aged 70 and over, and adults of all ages who are the most vulnerable are also due to receive a letter inviting them to book an appointment as they are within the first four priority groups.

“Everyone across health and care, including the emergency services and volunteers, as well as those at the Royal Cornwall Showground, have put in a tremendous amount of effort to enable us to be ready for Monday, and I cannot thank them enough.”

People will receive a letter when it is their turn to have the vaccine. Please do not contact the NHS to ask for a vaccine or show up to the showground without an appointment. 

Anyone attending an appointment at the vaccine centre will be greeted by volunteers who will marshal car parks and register them when they arrive. The centre has been organised to allow for social distancing.

They will receive a health check and a pre-vaccination assessment before the vaccine, and then be observed for 15 minutes afterwards.

Those who require extra support from a carer should have them attend the appointment but is asked this is kept to a maximum of one other person to maintain social distancing. Wheelchairs will be available for anyone who requires them, and disabled parking is available on site.

People attending their appointments should wear loose clothing to provide vaccinators easy access to the arm, and flat shoes.

Please ask someone, wherever possible, to drive you to and from the site. This will allow you to receive your jab and return to your day as quickly as possible, and will mean more people can be vaccinated at the centre.

For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, visit the dedicated COVID-19 vaccine page.


There have been a number of reports of criminals attempting, and in some cases succeeding, to steal cash or personal details from people keen to get the vaccine.
