Liberal Democrat councillors called for the suspension of standing orders at the latest meeting of Lymington and Pennington Town Council so that Councillor Jack Davies could put forward a motion that declared the town council’s support for Pride Month and for members of the LGBT+ community in Lymington and Pennington.

The motion was seconded by Councillor Colm McCarthy.

Following slight hesitation from some members within the ruling Conservative group, the motion passed unanimously.

The Town Council sent a press release to the local paper as well as put a statement on the Town Council website declaring the town council’s support for Pride Month and for Lymington and Pennington’s LGBT+ community.

This is the first time that Lymington and Pennington Town Council has declared its support for Pride Month.

Now that they have, they must go further and work to make Lymington and Pennington a better place for LGBT+ people to live and love.

Jack Davies, District and Town Councillor for Pennington, said:

“I’m so pleased that the council has unanimously shown its support for Pride Month.

This is the first step towards making Lymington and Pennington a better place to live for LGBT+ people.”
