Kowethas an Yeth Kernewek held its AGM in January. Chair Loveday Jenkin reported on the past year, including events, publications, joint initiatives and the appointment of the new Kowethas Community Development Officer. She said the Kowethas hoped to continue building on its membership and would like to hear members’ thoughts on how they would like to see the membership package develop.
In a presentation on his work thus far, the new Kowethas CDO, Peter Burton, said “Part of my role is to make Cornish more visible in everyday life and I am pleased that organisations like the Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum, Age UK Cornwall and Penwith Community Development Trust have been positive about promoting the use of Cornish to their members and user groups. I hope that we will see more organisations joining them in the future”.
