Programme

 

Aims & Objects

 

To explore the antiquities, architecture, heritage and natural history of Cornwall.

 

To take an active part in preserving historical buildings, stone monuments, wayside crosses and other ancient artefacts.

 

"Gather up the fragments that remain that nothing be lost"

Our meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month,

 

Meetings are held at St Mary's Parish Hall in St Mary's Road, Bodmin PL31 1NF.

It is on the ground floor, so no more stairs, and there is parking outside the building. We are in the Newman room which can be accessed directly from the car park and will be clearly marked. The room is open from 7 pm for a 7.30 pm start. New members and visitors are very welcome. Refreshments are available at the end of the meeting.

 

Subscriptions £7

 

 Members free but we do ask visitors for a £2 donation. Refreshments available at the end of each meeting

 

Whilst every effort will be made to keep to the planned programme, circumstances may make

it necessary to change certain events.

Reports

 

At Bodmin Social Evening we were superbly entertained by DEW VARDH, namely Bert Biscoe and Pol Hodge. A very lively time was had by all and we all indulged on pasties and saffron buns. Our new banner was presented to the Society by member Veronica Hill who had made it to celebrate our 90th Anniversary.
