St Mewan Parish Council Community Volunteer Award Winner for Polgooth with Trelowth 2022/2023

Published: 16 March 2023

A super morning spent meeting with 25/170 members of Polgooth Community & Garden Club who have won this year’s St Mewan Parish Community Volunteer Award.
They meet once a month and everyone is made to feel very welcome with a typed schedule of what is planned for the months ahead. Chatting to some people, who even happen to live in neighbouring parishes, the meetings are invaluable as they are not just about gardening but helping individuals overcome social isolation. They continue to build a strong based community spirit with all their planned events and have recently raised £500 to assist financially in the renewal of the new floor in Polgooth Village Hall. Well done! There was a lot of nominations this year and whilst you may not have scooped the win, St Mewan Parish Council continue to value all individual volunteers and groups who regularly contribute to making their community a better place. So a big thankyou to everyone who does their bit.
