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 Councillor Karen Phillips 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 2022.

The Bodmin Civic Awards 2021 scheme consists of awards in categories as follows:
This honour is in recognition of the continuous, freely given contribution a resident has made over a long period, to promote Bodmin as a great place to live and work. The elected councillors nominate people to receive this honour, and the Mayor, Jeremy Cooper was delighted to make awards to the recipients for 2021:
Mr. Balu Madhvani for his work in the community and with young people at Bodmin Boxing Club.
Honoured Burgess – Mr Balu Madhvani
Mr. Keith Searle for his work to preserve the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, an important part of this town’s heritage.

As part of the Bodmin Civic Award Scheme, people living locally are also invited to nominate anyone in the community who they feel deserves special recognition. The aim of this scheme is to recognise and celebrate volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution to Bodmin and its residents. This might include volunteers who have given their time for a cause or for others in our society or someone who is helping an organisation to develop or thrive.
