Bodmin Community Volunteer Awards

The Council recognises that without the tireless efforts of community champions such as these, many organisations could not continue to exist or thrive.  It is therefore extremely important to congratulate and thank our volunteers for their dedication and commitment.

If you would like to find out more about the  Community Volunteer Award or submit a nomination, please contact us by email or download a nomination form from the ‘Useful Documents’ area below. Nominations for the next award should be submitted no later than 31 March 2023.
