At Bude’s annual town meeting on May 2 the newly elected mayor, Cllr Bob Willingham told the members of the council that he had written to Cornwall’s police and crime commissioner, as he felt disappointed with her limited amount of contact with the area.

He said: “I wrote a stroppy email to the commissioner asking if she would be able to come and meet with the council. I have been informed that the police and crime commissioner will be coming to Bude on May 15, to hold a public meet and greet outside of Sainsbury’s.”

Cllr Willingham went on to explain that Alison Hernandez, the PCC will also be doing a ‘walk about’ the town on the day and she has said if anyone would like to come and speak with her, they will have an opportunity during that period, or during her meet and greet.

Cornwall Councillor, Peter La Broy said: “I inwardly object to this, she wants to come to our town and asked us if we want to visit her?

“It’s the wrong way round I think.”

Cllr Willingham explained that she will be holding a street fair outside of the supermarket for an hour.

Cllr Lea Deely was shocked by the news, adding: “It’s an absolute farce. She’s coming to our town and won’t meet us?”

Cllr Willingham replied: “I have asked for an informal meet with members of the council but I’m waiting for a reply.”
