Bodmin Bowls Club is a community amateur sports club which has developed a Sport Development Plan, covering an initial three-year period from October 2023 to September 2026 inclusive. This plan actively encourages all members of the community to get involved in sport, leading to improving their activity levels, health and wellbeing. Their Clubhouse and facilities are situated on the outskirts of Bodmin Town Centre.

The club noticed signs of damp internally, which after a professional survey, confirmed significant issues with the roof, which, if not immediately addressed, could cause water damage and potentially result in closure of the Clubhouse. If the Clubhouse were to close, this would prevent the delivery of the current activities and planned additional community use.

This project will therefore renovate the whole of the Clubhouse’s extensive flat roof. The project will not only deal with weatherproofing but also increase the thermal insulation of the building’s roof, which should have benefits in lowering heating costs and the club’s carbon footprint. This will then allow the Club to proceed with advertising the facilities to the whole Bodmin community of circa 17,000 residents of all ages from the young to the elderly to encourage them to experience the sport and its activities.

The Clubhouse has extensive facilities that would also be available to rent on occasions by groups and organisations. These facilities include a lounge, kitchen, changing rooms, men’s, ladies and disabled toilets, and importantly on-site vehicle parking. This letting arrangement is proposed to be initially only by direct enquiries to the Club.

The CLUP investment means that Bodmin Bowls Club will be able to provide additional activities and services at their Clubhouse.
