Local Incident and Trauma Support Network
Following the tragic incident which occurred during the early hours of Sunday morning – 30th April 2023, we have prepared a list of contacts for the purpose of providing support and guidance with dealing with associated trauma.
This is an isolated incident; however, the Police will continue to be present for the purposes of their investigations to offer support to the community.
Please be assured that the police are sensitively managing the situation. Bodmin Town Council is collaborating closely with the Police and other agencies to signpost available help and support.
Starting today at 1600 until 1800 (01/05/23) at Bodmin Rugby Club, is a ‘community hub’ where members of the community can come to ask questions, provide information and receive support from their local police.
These community hubs will run twice daily (1000-1200 & 1600-1800 ) at the Rugby club up until Sunday. The victim’s family and the Rugby Club would like anyone wishing to place tributes, for them to do so at the club.
The community can expect to see additional hi-visibility foot patrols around Bodmin over the next few weeks with a particular focus on the town centre, Flamank Park, Northy Road and Castle Canyke Road.
Beyond this, the police will be looking to work with the licencing, safer communities and the Eclipse Night Club to further re-enforce that Bodmin is still a safe place to live.
We ask that people refrain from speculation but if they have information they wish to share in relation to this incident, then they can do so through the major incident portal:
