This exhibition is the work of students who took part in a competition organised by Camelford Town Council to produce photographs to market Camelford on the Council’s website and marketing material. The winner will receive a £100 Amazon Voucher. Wine and nibbles will be available for those wanting to view this work. Winner and runner ups announced at 6.45pm.

We are delighted to announce that Lisa Ellison is our new Horticultural Apprentice. Lisa will be helping John Gilbert and Rob Botten manage the ever increasing maintenance tasks in the Camelford Parish, including Enfield Park, the allotments and the new cemetery/community orchard. Lisa is a local resident of Camelford and also has her own allotment.
Surveys for car parking and the Neighbourhood Development Plan have now CLOSED. We are currently inputting the results into an online data base and hope to have the results by November at the latest. We were delighted with the amount of responses – 35% were completed and returned which is a fantastic amount. We now have around 800 surveys to enter, so please bear with us!
Calling all businesses and allotment holders! Entry forms for this year’s Camelford in Bloom are now available to download here or collect from the Town Council Offices (above Parkway Insurance), the Post Office or Spar. Return by 1 August. Judging will take place week commencing 7 August and winners will be announced at the Camelford Show on 9 August.
We will be at the Camelford Show as usual this year, with some exciting updates for our lovely town. We will have updates on the Camelford Neighbourhood Development Plan and would really like further comments as to what you would like Camelford to look like in the next 15 years – from open spaces, development, infrastructure, roads etc.
We also hope to have some initial designs for you to vote on for the Enfield Park play area and a new concrete skate park. We very much want all of your input so that you get the parks that you want. Do come along and see us!
We are also sponsoring a bus that will pick up from Clease Road every hour from 10am and then returning hourly from 1.45pm to Camelford for the duration of the show until 5.45pm.
