While I have come to really enjoy writing these introductions and keeping you updated about intoBodmin’s latest news, this time there is so much happening and so many brilliant things in the pipeline, there just isn’t space! So, I’m not going to write any more, I’m simply going to let you read all the wonderful news for yourself, below.

I hope you’re all staying safe and well, and don’t forget, if there’s a community activity you’d like us to help you facilitate or you have an idea you’d like to get off the ground, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

All the best,
