News From Kernow Matters To Us:

We are grateful to our Breton brothers and sisters for drawing this news to our attention:

The Valley of the Saints: The hundredth statue sets sail to Carnoët, Brittany.

The statue will represent Saint Piran - Cornish Abbot and Saint, will be sculpted at Mabe, near Falmouth and will sail in May 2018.

Saint Piran will be represented with a millstone wheel around his neck. The Cornish legend tells how, Piran, already aged, was captured by the local pagan Irish.

A judgement on the National Trust!

This is what the National Trust, aided and abetted by the planners who dutifully gave the consents, consider appropriate to uglify and vandalise an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Area of Great Historic Value, Heritage Coast, World Heritage Site and Site of Special Scientific Importance (yes, Levant is all of those).

It seems that the National Trust has now joined with "English" Heritage in its attitude towards care for Cornwall's heritage.

The Charter for Cornwall

News from Kernow Matters To Us:

The Charter for Cornwall (issued by the Charter for Cornwall team)

The Cornish countryside is disappearing at an alarming rate.

Our landscapes are being degraded and urbanised and the character of our towns and villages is changing forever.

Tranquility, the environment and our heritage are ruthlessly ignored.

Our young people are finding it more and more difficult to find an affordable home yet, meanwhile, housing continues to be sold off as second 'homes'.

Cornwall: Westminster Government Department for Communities & Local Government (DCLG) decline to release information. Appeal to Independent Information Commissioner launched!

News from Kernow Matters To Us:

As will be widely known, 2016 saw the end of the Westminster Government's return of a rather paltry £150,000 a year of our tax money to support the continued growth and development of the Cornish language. 

This occurred despite the Government's signing of the language charter in 2002 and formal recognition of the Cornish people in 2014. 

Accordingly, a Freedom of Information request was lodged with the relevant Westminster Department seeking background material to cast light on this spiteful decision.
