Camelford Town Council are delighted to announce a visit by HRH Princess Alexandra, the Honourable Lady Ogilvy, to Camelford on the afternoon of 31 July 2018.  HRH will be visiting the library to meet the Mayor, Town Council staff and Councillors, and will unveil a commemorative plaque.  HRH will then meet a selection of local organisations and charities in Market Place, followed by an official opening of the new bandstand.  If you would like to come down and show your support, we are asking for spectators to gather on the pavement opposite the bandstand, where Steve Heard Butchers and Four Seasons Café are located.

Starting 30th June.  Come and enjoy some free arts and crafts.  Fun for all the family!

Enter now for this year’s Camelford in Bloom.  Entry forms available in the Library, Spar and Stephens Home Hardware.


The Summer Reading Challenge returns to Camelford Library on 14 July 2018! This year the theme is “Mischief Makers” inspired by the much-loved iconic children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary. The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to read six library books during the long summer holiday.

Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become ultimate mischief makers!  Dennis, Gnasher and friends will help them solve clues and collect stickers, having lots of fun and adventures along the way!

Children can read whatever they like – fiction, fact books, joke books, picture books, audio books – just as long as they are borrowed from the library.

Children receive special rewards each time they finish a book and there’s a certificate for everyone who completes the challenge.

Children will need to register on 14 July at the library to take part. If your child does not currently belong to the library, you will need to join them up. Easy and quick to do! See the website for more details


We are also holding a craft workshop at Camelford Library on 28 July from 10.30-12.30 with local artist John Blight.  As we will be limited for numbers, children will need to sign up for the workshop.  Please give your name to staff at Camelford Library to participate.

We have a vacancy for a Councillor.  Notice was given on 8 May and no calls for an election were made, and so we are now going to co-opt.  If you would like to put your name forward to become a Councillor, please see the advert below.  We will be getting in touch with those who have already expressed an interest, giving them the details within this post.
