Bodinnick

Iris Binstead of SOS reports that the parish of Lanteglos-by-Fowey (Polruan, Bodinnick, Whitecross and Mixtow) in South East Cornwall had a meeting last night (10 September) at which the voting was 17 to 0 to support the parish poll calling for a referendum on the EU constitution. There was just one abstention (the Parish Clerk who had also declined to take the minutes). The paperwork will now be sent to Caradon District to demand a poll.

Last night Sidmouth East Town ward also won a parish poll by a 10 to 2 vote. Sylvia Brownlee was the organiser leading the effort. As David would say, 'well done!' He has more about parish polls here.
