One of the joys of village life is that everything is so much less tense. I thought that I might test this theory by paying one last visit to the polling station... with my cat, Cincinnati.
So, with orange and white cat over my shoulder, I strolled down The Lane (original street name, that one), to thank the presiding officer and assistant for their efforts today. Cincinnati purred his approval too, and we had a quick catchup.
The final number of votes cast in Creeting St Peter was 76, 35.4% of eligible voters. There are 14 postal voters on the register, so turnout will probably reach 40%.
