Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo have their say

Last Wednesday many people will have participated in Halloween activities or, in my case, avoided them. But in the twin villages of Newton and Noss which face each other across the River Yealm in the far south west of Devon parishioners had the chance to indulge in another activity ...

It was their turn to make their thoughts known on the matter of a national referendum on the European Constitution if they so wished. This follows the recent parish referendum at Shaldon on which I had previously blogged on 26th October. As in the Shaldon case Newton and Noss overwhelmingly demonstrated their desire for an EU referendum.

The figures for Newton and Noss: Yes 302 No 26.
