Here are the results of the ballot on Sunday pub opening in Wales. The government have announced that they are abandoning the practice of holding ballots every seven years, so these results will stand.
Ballots were held only if a petition of at least 500 people requested a change in the status quo.
This year ballots were held under the new local government units, previously they had been held in the old districts and prior to 1974 in the old counties.
Ballots were held in only two counties: Gwynedd - which held the last dry area, Dwyfor Rhondda-Cynon-Taff - All of which was wet.
In Anglesey, some of the staunchest supporters of Sunday closure were pub landlords. Many had moved from Manchester largely to get Sunday's off.
It was rank hypocrisy by many dry supporters who would have a drink at the golf club on a Sunday. "Well you get thirsty after playing golf!"
Most of the locals would know a club where you could get a drink on Sunday's so it only really affected tourists.
At one stage you had to drive to from Amlych to Rhyl to find a wet area. Then I think Aberconwy changed so Llandudno would suffice.
Yeah, my dad has often told me 1960s tales of pubs in what became Mid and West Glamorgan that operated a slate on Sundays (pay up on a Monday) and has actually cited a golf club (Southerdown IIRC but I'm not sure that prohibition extended there- maybe it was full of recreational golfers from other clubs on weekly away days).
