Resolutions made by St Neot Parish Council March, April, May and June 2020
A list of the resolutions made by St Neot Parish during March, April, May and June 2020 when the parish council was unable to meet in person can be found under the documents section of this website.
St Neot is a large, sparsely populated moorland parish on Bodmin Moor, Cornwall. The Fowey river forms the eastern and southern boundaries, the old road from Bodmin to Launceston forms the northern boundary, and the western boundary follows the Warleggan river before following the Bedalder stream running out of Dewey marsh high on the moor.
The main settlement is St Neot, located in a sheltered valley in the south of the parish on the river Loveny or St Neot river. The road through the village was the main route from Bodmin to Liskeard before the construction of the A38 along the Fowey valley. The London Inn was a stopping point on this route and is now a traditional country pub with accommodation.
The village and parish are named after Neot, a Saxon saint about whom very little is known The settlement at St Neot is mentioned in the Domesday Book, at which time it was a village held by Odo, from the Count of Mortain. The holy well of St Neot lies just to the north of the village.
The higher moorland shows evidence of much earlier bronze age settlements and field systems. From the earliest times until the early industrial period, minerals including tin and copper were mined from the moor.
It was with great sadness that we have today learned of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. St Neot Parish Council, on behalf of the parish, will convey our deepest sympathies and condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family.
Throughout his life he was a truly remarkable and much respected consort to Her Majesty The Queen. He selflessly gave her support, stability and comfort as she led our country through times of great social change.
Others have paid tribute to his devotion and his life of duty and public service and we would like to echo these tributes. He touched the lives of so many people of all generations and will be greatly missed by the Royal Family and a grateful nation.
Personally, I think of the impact of the Gold, Silver and Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme that he set up in 1956 and the way this has impacted on the many young people I have met. This scheme has, I believe, been copied in many other nations of the world.
