Newham residents get helping hand with 2011 Census
Help is at hand for those who need assistance filling out their Census forms.
Questionnaires are in the process of being delivered to tens of thousands of homes across Newham.
And as the April 6 deadline for completion nears, more than 80 events will be taking place throughout the borough.
Trained volunteers will be on hand to offer advice and assistance, which will be available in a dozen different languages, including Polish, Hindi and Bengali.
The first session takes place on Saturday at Stratford Library, and more will follow at community centres, libraries - and even the Lituanica Polish supermarket in Beckton.
