St Sampson Parish Council meets on the third Tuesday of each month (excluding August) in the village hall
at 7.30 pm. The meeting is open to the public. Preceding the meeting at 7.15 is the opportunity to view
any planning applications and to raise issues with the parish council. The annual Parish Meeting is normally
held on the third Thursday in April.
A meeting of villagers and quay users was held on 17th August 1959. An Association was formed with the
object to ascertain once and for all ownership of the rights over the Quay and the use of the slipway.
Donations were received and the GOLANT QUAY USERS ASSOCIATION was formed. The first chairman was
Mr R Duvollet of Riverview House. Members were able to moor their boats and dinghies inside the Pill on
properly numbered berths and a Constitution of Rules was drawn up outlining the do's and dont's for
Golant Boatwatch (formerly known as the Golant Boat Owners Association)
Originally set up in 1995 to combat marine related crimes on the river Fowey, the voluntary association
has continued to provide an ongoing and successful resource that has limited the level of marine crime in
this area. Seen as a forerunner of other more recent schemes in the area, the Golant Boat Owners
Association (now more commonly known as Golant Boatwatch) has continued to provide an ongoing “watch
based” service in the village and on the river.
