Museum notice - artefacts review and rationalisation


Bodmin Town Museum is presently reviewing its collection in line with its Collection Development Policy, the national Museum Accreditation Standards and the Museum Association’s Code of Ethics.

The museum has a proactive approach to collecting material that tells the story of Bodmin and surrounding Parishes, preserving, displaying and interpreting that rich heritage for the enjoyment of the community and visitors to Cornwall.

At present the museum is holding in store bulky artefacts, some in poor condition, and some that are not of local significance.

Current storage arrangements for this material are coming to an end and the museum does not wish tax payers’ money spent storing and maintaining artefacts that do not add to Bodmin’s rich history and heritage.

The museum is in the process of offering these artefacts to other Accredited Museums in Cornwall and elsewhere in the country where they will hopefully be relevant and valued additions to those collections.

The donors, where they have been traced, have been kept informed of developments throughout the process and, if no other Accredited Museum in Cornwall or elsewhere in the country wishes to acquire the objects, will have a say in how they are disposed of.

Feeding the pond ducks - Official Council response


In response to the media story Bodmin Town Council is not banning people from feeding bread to ducks.

The Council's comments were in response to complaints regarding recent gull attacks on ducklings.

Bodmin Town Council is carrying out a range of works to Priory Pond to improve flora and fauna. The public can assist and give nature a hand by thinking about alternative food to feed the ducks such as corn, lettuce etc.

The information is therefore advice and guidance based on helping ducks and the water quality of the pond.

New Cemetery building refurbished


Bodmin Town Council is pleased to advise that work is currently being carried out to refurbish the building in the New Cemetery. This is part of a wider programme of works to better care for the final resting place of the town’s loved ones. To assist with meeting these aims the Council has also redeployed a member of staff as Sexton to spend dedicated time maintaining this site (New Cemetery) and the Old Cemetery at Cross Lane.

A local builder (Steven Hosken) has been commissioned to carry out this building refurbishment work and good progress is being made despite the inclement Spring weather.

The Council will be looking to provide a unisex toilet at this building for public use and it is currently envisaged that this toilet facility will be open from 8.30 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

100th anniversary of Private James Henry Finn Commemorated


100th anniversary of Private James Henry Finn Commemoration on Mount Folly Bodmin

Bodmin marked the 100th anniversary of Private James Henry Finn's heroic and selfless act in World War I which led to him being awarded the Victoria Cross when it came together to commemorate his award on Saturday 9 April 2016 with the unveiling of a paving stone bearing his name.

The paving stone was installed on Mount Folly, a pedestrinaised area of open space in the heart of the town and will act as a visible and lasting reminder for the town and for future generations of the heroic, selfless and conspicuous bravery performed by Private James Henry Finn on 9 April 1916.

Paving slab dedicated to Private James Finn VCMembers of the Finn family were in attendance to mark and witness the occasion and the paving stone, which was covered with the St. Piran's flag, was unveiled by Colonel Bolitho, the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall. Other special invited guests included Mrs Jane Hartley, the High Sheriff of Cornwall, Scott Mann MP and Councillor R Nolan, the Mayor Elect of Truro City Council.

As one of only three Salvationist to be awarded the VC for action in WWI, it was only fitting that Lieutenant Colonel M Fincham and Corps Sergeant Major J Stanyard attended to provide an overview of James Finn's life and to support Reverend Elaine Munday with prayers.

Musical support for the event was delivered with a distinguished and masterful performance by Bodmin Town Band and the Bugler from 6 Rifles performed Last Post and Reveille.

The Cadets (Army, Air Training Corp and Police) read 'The Soldier'; a poem by Rupert Brooke and Bartlomiej Rosinski from Bodmin College performed a superb individual reading which was well received by the audience.

Veterans associations were in attendance together with representatives of RAF St. Mawgan, RNAS Culdrose, 232 Port Squadron, 243 Wessex Field Hospital, SSAFA, Aden Vets, Royal British Legion, Light Infantry Association, Royal Naval Association, Royal Air Force Association and a range of other community organisations.

Bodmin Town Council, as the event organiser, would like to thank everyone who participated and contributed to this successful and humbling event for the town.

Private James Henry Finn VC Commemorative Event - 9 April 2016


Bodmin will be the first town in Cornwall to unveil a commemorative paving stone to mark the 100th anniversary of Private James Henry Finn being awarded the Victoria Cross for conspicuous bravery for action in World War I.

Private James Henry Finn VCTo mark this occasion there will be a fully robed and colourful civic event on the Mount Folly on Saturday 9 April 2016 beginning at 11.00 a.m. which will include The Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, the High Sheriff of Cornwall together with Soldiers of The Royal Welsh (as the successor regiment to the South Wales Borderers), the Salvation Army, the Mayor of Bodmin and the Deputy Mayor of Truro and which will include readings by Cadets (Army, Air Training Corps and Police) and Bodmin College students.

Bodmin Town Band will provide musical support and a Bugler from The Rifles will play the Last Post and Reveille. Standard Bearers will be present.

The commemorative paving stone has been commissioned by the Department for Communities and Local Government and will be installed on the Mount Folly, a pedestrianised area of public open space, as a visible and lasting legacy for the town and for future generations.

The paving stone will be unveiled by Colonel Bolitho, Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall and promises to be a poignant occasion.

A number of family relatives of James Henry Finn will be in attendance at this event to mark this 100 year anniversary and to remember James and his act of bravery.

Bodmin Town Council - Council Tax 2016/17


The Town Council's precept demand for 2016/17 is £1,101,600.00 representing an increase of 9.97% on a Band D property per annum (net expenditure to cover operational costs £1,398,462.00).

As Bodmin's housing stock is primarily Band A, B and C, with fewer Band D homes, this is a fairly weak comparison tool. To assist by way of more meaningful comparison, the following town council's precepts for 2016/17 are as follows:
 
  • Falmouth £1,637,436.15
  • Newquay £1,559,500.00
  • Truro £1,512,451.00

Falmouth is underpinned by the university and maritime offer (leisure and commercial), Newquay enjoys huge tourism benefits and Truro as the County's City and prime retail centre enjoys both a Business Improvement District and more direct services from the principal council as it is Cornwall Council's base of operations.

Other local (town and parish) councils are only now taking on the provision of public toilets for their communities from Cornwall Council. Bodmin Town Council has provided public toilets for its residents since the early 1990s.

In reaching the precept demand for Bodmin, Town Councillors spent 5 hours debating each and every budget line at its Finance, Staffing & Performance Management Committee meeting held on 7 January 2016.

Central government continues to cut funding to local councils and this year Bodmin Town Council received a further reduction to the Council Tax Support Grant which resulted in a direct cut of just under £18,000.00.

With these increases alone and before any budget is revised to accommodate increases in rates and utilities the Town Council's precept would need to rise by 5.8% to stand still.

To drive forward service delivery the Council has examined its parks and open spaces and has taken the decision to redeploy a member of staff as 2 Sexton to the town's cemeteries in order to be proactive to grounds maintenance work. A dedicated member of staff in the cemetery will see an improved environment for our loved ones. The building in the New Cemetery will be repainted and the toilet reopened to the public. Given vandalism issues the toilet will only be open during the working hours of the Sexton. The Council will also be looking to implement a refined replacement equipment, machinery and vehicle budget as it has for a number of years simply increased the maintenance budget for its existing equipment and a number of its ride-on mowers are now in need of replacement having reached the end of their amenity life. The Council has 'sweated' its machinery to mitigate the impact to the ratepayers of the town and any residual value in the mowers will be reinvested into new equipment and kit.

The Council is also assessing the heating system in the Shire House as it is inefficient and more than 20 years old. As such, the Council is aware that whilst there is an initial expense to replace the heating system, there will be cost savings in the longer-term as new systems are more economical and can be better programmed to reduce fuel consumption and to heat areas on a demand / need basis. The Council will be looking to maximise income from office accommodation rental as part of maximising use of the Shire House.

The Council is also moving any leases that it has in place for use of its buildings and land on to market rentals to ensure that this income stream is based on a current market rental valuation. This ensures that a fair and reasonable rental is achieved in this area of non-precept orientated income.

The Priory Car Park's (pay and display) tariff remains unchanged for 2016/17.

The Council will continue to strive to improve the town's parks and open spaces and there has been a £20,000 budget allocation towards a replacement skate park. The existing facility is aged and any location needs assessment given constraints. The Town Council will add funding to this budget year-on-year and will look to offset costs by way of grants.

Bodmin Town has now passed its staging date for auto enrolment and therefore all employees are now auto enrolled on the superannuation scheme rather than it operating on an employee discretion basis. Following a number of years of staff pay being frozen there has now been an agreement to provide employees with a 1% wage increase, the first pay increase for local government workers for a number of years.

Two major projects being scoped by Bodmin Town Council are:

  • New public toilets in Priory Park to replace aged building and to provide more modern disabled friendly facilities and to reduce by good design vandalism issues;
  • New CCTV system in partnership with the Police – reduces fear of crime and provides a valuable tool in the crime detection armoury.

Bodmin is the Best in the South West


Winners!

‘A fitting finale for the South West’s top industry’ was one description of the Awards night in Exeter Cathedral, as 10 months of work culminated in the presentation of 95 trophies to the South West’s leading tourism businesses at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2015-16.

The event broke new ground being hosted in the Nave of Exeter Cathedral, itself one of the region’s top tourist attractions. The awards broke the previous record for entries with 490 submissions being considered, each going through a rigorous 3-stage judging process of marking, visits and panel meetings.

Amongst the winners was the team from Bodmin Visitor Information Centre – shortlisted in the best tourism information provider – alongside Gloucester, Dartmouth, Purbeck, Launceston and Bournemouth. With this year’s awards event being hosted by ITV news presenters Kylie Pentelow and Ian Axton, the Shire Hall team were delighted to hear that the service was to be awarded the Gold award.

Information Officer Wendy Wright was thrilled with the news. “To win the gold and to be named as the best in the south west is a great testament to the staff. It shows that the team never rests on its laurels and the commitment to providing the best customer service is the top priority.”

This award adds to the team’s collection of accolades which includes their gold “win” at the Cornwall Tourism Awards in November.

Festive fun in Bodmin



Bodmin kick-started the festive season on Friday 4 December with its annual 'Lights Up' Event when the town welcomed bright and colourful 'Lion King' lanterns which paraded through the town. This year's theme reflected the Bodmin College production of the Disney Lion King which will be performed in the Hall for Cornwall, Truro in March 2016. Large numbers of people lined the streets to witness the procession down Fore Street before its arrival on Mount Folly.

'Can you feel the love tonight' rang out loud as the Simba and the beasts arrived on the Folly before the Christmas lights were switched-on by Bodmin's Iryna Mynich to large cheers of celebration. Carol singing followed before everyone enjoyed the evening and found fine food from the attending Bodmin Scout Group refreshment tent.

Father Christmas rescheduled his diary to visit Bodmin and his elves and helpers transformed the BCA Rooms into a fitting and cosy Grotto. Hundreds of children waited patiently in hushed silence for their turn to see Father Christmas whilst the fun continued on the Folly. Father Christmas listened intently to each child as they whispered their wishes for Christmas to him and many a Ho Ho Ho! could be heard bellowing from the Grotto.

Thanks are extended to all who made the event a huge success for the town and appreciation is extended but not limited to: Bodmin Christmas Lights Committee and volunteers, Bodmin Town Band, Bodmin College and local primary schools, Bodmin Scout Group, Bodmin Lions, local traders, Town Crier and Bodmin Town Council staff.

Charity Prisoners Raise over £23,000 Bail


Children's hospice South WestChildren’s Hospice South West’s (CHSW) first ever Jail and Bail event held in Bodmin on Friday was hailed a great success after over £23,000 was raised, with more money still coming in.

Betty Stogs; Skinners Queen of Ales, Johnny Cowling from Pirate FM, Steve Chapman from CHSW’s Roseland Friends Group, Shane Solomon from the Cornwall Channel, Andy Ross from RNAS Culdrose, Roger Lyle from Mitchel and Webber, Neil Skyba from Polymermedics, Matt Franks from Fluid Branding and Stuart Jarvis from Santander were the 9 prisoners who took part.

The prisoners assembled at Bodmin Police Station on Friday morning and were then transported in Police vans down to the Bodmin Court Room Experience on Mount Folly. Their charges were read in the court room, evidence was given and some colleagues came along to speak as witnesses. Following their plea all prisoners were found guilty of their crimes and had just 4 hours to each raise their bail sum of £999 to be released. Prisoners were calling friends, family, colleagues, suppliers and clients to persuade them to make a donation towards their bail. When 4pm came the fundraising team announced that £23, 112 had been raised in the four hours but it was clear that donations were still rolling in.

The success of Jail and Bail far exceeded the expectations of CHSW’s Fundraising Team and they are delighted with the amount raised.

Sarah Stott, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser said “On behalf of all of the children and families we care for I would like to thank each and every one of our 9 prisoners & their supporters for helping to raise such an incredible sum of money. We were blown away by the donations given to help bail our prisoners out and it was an absolutely fantastic day. Thank you all so much.”

CHSW would like to thank the team at Bodmin Courtroom Experience, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, Bodmin Town Council, Pirate FM, Skinners Brewery, ‘Prison Warden’ Jonathan Start of Start & Co and ‘Judge’ Chris Batters.

Money raised from Jail and Bail will go straight towards the care and support offered by CHSW to children with life limiting illnesses and their families that use Little Harbour in St Austell. Little Harbour children’s hospice costs over £2million a year to run, therefore donations such as this from events and from the generosity of those in the local community are greatly appreciated.

Priory II car park closed Thursday 5th November


As per previous years the Priory II car park (the long stay car park by Bodmin Town Football Club) will be closed all day on Thursday 5 November 2015 to assist the Bodmin Joint Firework Committee (volunteers from Bodmin Lions and Bodmin Rotary together with the Town Council) with the site set-up and arrangements to facilitate the annual bonfire and fireworks display.

St. Petroc’s School have been notified (14 Oct) and they have been asked to advise parents via a satchel drop or other school newsletter.

This is a great annual event for the town and as such the Town Council hopes that it does not cause too much disruption to the school run.

I am sure that a lot of parents are already aware of the event and the necessity to have a sterile area to put in place the necessary Health and Safety arrangements to make the event happen and without incident.

Parents will be able to park in the other areas of the car park and the Car Park Inspector will be taking a lenient approach to enforcement around the core dropping-off and collections times for parents on this day.

Town Clerk
