The Voting has Begun

Your Common, Your Voice

Graziers, non graziers and owners of 29 commons in Cumbria have been sent voting papers. They are being asked if they are in favour of their local Commons Association joing a Commons Council for Cumbria. All voting papers must be returned to Charlotte Raw at H & H Bowe by February 28th.

The Federation of Cumbria Commoners is supporting a “YES” vote.  Dave Smith, Chairman of the Federation says;

“This is a turning point for the management of your local common, a Council would enable more effective and democratic local control of our commons helping to ensure a viable future both now and for future generations.”

The results will be announced at the Federation’s AGM on 4th March 1.30pm at Melmerby Village Hall.

Please encourage your fellow commoners to vote, if you know someone who has not received a voting form please phone Charlotte me on 01228 406 260
