St Sampson Parish Council

Welcome to the official website of St Sampson Parish Council

St Sampson Parish Council

It was with great sadness that we have today learned of the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
St Sampson 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.
He will I think be remembered for one of his favourite personal projects, “The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme,” which has helped so many young people all over the world. He will be sadly missed, and our thoughts will be for the Royal Family and especially Her Majesty The Queen at this most difficult time.

About the Parish

The small Parish of St Sampson dates from about AD610 when a Welsh bishop named St Samson is said to have founded a monastery in the locality.

With its proximity to the Fowey Estuary, fishing and the coastal trade supported the local population for many generations. Today the river estuary is as popular as ever, however, trading ships and fishing has long since given way to 21st century leisure pursuits, all of which encourage visitors in the holiday seasons, when they are most welcome.

Our Parish consists of some 105 homes, giving a current residential population of about 200. The Parish Council currently consists of six members and a Parish Clerk. The council meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month in the Village Hall. Members of the public are very welcome to attend our meetings  and  are given an opportunity to speak.

We hope you will find this an interesting and useful source of information.

Thank you for visiting St Sampson Parish Council website.
