We have a two highly succesful facebook pages and a youtube channel where we post regular videos on the subject of Cornish Culture.
We believe that Cornish Culture is the best way to bring the Cornish Community together regardless of ethnic origin, political beliefs, gender or any other factor. This makes our community stronger and more capable of dealing with the challenges of the 21st Century.
