MEMBERS TREASURE HUNT:  Sat. 20th Jan 2024

The social and fun side of being a member of Rotary is as important as offering help and support to our communities. On Saturday more than 50 of us from 4 clubs - Rotary Club of St Austell, Rotary Club of Lostwithiel, Rotary Club of Wadebridge and Bodmin Rotary joined to do a treasure hunt. There were two routes and we finished for lunch in the Shire House Suite in Bodmin. A lot of fun was had and it was great for us all to meet people from other nearby clubs. Our thanks to everyone who took part and very special thanks to Paul Bassett , from Lostwithiel Rotary Club who had the idea and made it happen and his wonderful wife Joy Bassett, who single handedly prepared an incredible lunch for us all.

Some of the strange places we discovered !!!

CHRISTMAS COLLECTIONS: Many thanks to everyone who generously supported or collection, which is our main money raising event of the year.  This enables our club to  support many groups and individuals who are in need of help, both locally and internationally.

POLIO : Wed. 15th Nov. 2023 - Purple Crocus planting at St. Petrocs Church in recognition of the Eradication of Polio Worldwide.  Approx. 20 children from Beacon Academy School, gathered with tools to plant 4000 bulbs.

The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary's worldwide campaign to eradicate polio, with its colour representing the dye used to mark the finger of a child who has been immunised.

LEST WE FORGET - Sunday 12th Nov. 2023

The weather really wasn't the best today when our President, Neil Carter, and Terri Young from Bodmin Inner Wheel were among the community orgnisation representatives laying wreaths at the Remembrance Day Service in Priory Park. 

It was heartening to see so many people turn out to remember the sacrifices so many have made, and continue to make, to protect our freedom. Lest we forget.

WHEELS - Sunday 16th July:  Wadebridge:

" Wadebridge Rotary kindly invited us to have a stand at the amazing Wadebridge Wheels event on Sunday 16th July . We were promoting our Bikers Meet for Milke that will be happening on Sunday the 20th August in Priory Park, Bodmin. We met some fabulous people, ate some good food, saw some fabulous vehicles, had a few laughs, got a little soggy and generally had a great day. However, one of the visitors to our gazebo was rather 'otherworldly' which could be why members Carolyn and Nigel are looking a bit surprised"

BODMIN HOSPITAL FETE: Sat. 17th June 2023

Members of  Bodmin Rotary Club were at the Bodmin Hospital Fete on Saturday 17th June to help set up the tea tent with Bodmin Lions , sell ice cream and participate in the Human Fruit Machine! We raised £394 for the Bodmin Hospital League of Friends and had a few laughs as well.

PRESIDENTS NIGHT 15th April 2023

A great time was had by all at the Bodmin Rotary Presidents Night on Saturday 15th April. Su Tune, chose Avalen Farm as the venue for her Night and she and her family did a great job. Su presented Anne Gregan the Bodmin Rotary Community Champion Award in recognition of the amazing work that she has done for many years for the Hospital League of Friends buying equipment for the Bodmin Hospital.  Neil Carter seems surprised about something - maybe it dawned on him that it will be him organising his Presidents Night next year.  Su looked absolutely gorgiss, as did her  fab girls.

January Bodmin Market:

We would like to thank Bodmin Town Council for letting Bodmin Rotary have a table in the foyer of the Shire Hall. Thanks also to Phil and Carolyn Cooper, our Mayor and Mayoress, for coming along to support the market and also making a donation to Bodmin Rotary. More thanks also to the lovely people who bought our draught excluders and door stops to help us raise some more money to get some more heated throws to give to elderly people to keep them snuggly in this cold weather. We were also giving out flyers about the Cornish Night Out concert and making some new friends.
Many thanks

Speaker 3rd Aug. 2022

Renate Collins, 89 years old from Cornwall, shared her experience of Nazi genocide, received a British Empire Medal for services to Holocaust education.  She escaped on the last train from Prague in 1938 before ww2 was declared.... She was only five years old when she left Prague. Boarding the train was the last time she saw her parents. Her mother and grandmother were both shot after their train broke down en route to Treblinka extermination camp in Poland, while her father and Uncle Felix were murdered at Auschwitz. In total, she lost 64 members of her family during the Holocaust.

Renates talk was very absorbing and heart felt - a wonderful lady - Thank you for coming to talk to us  -  needless to say, with links to the Bazely family !
