Partnership update

July saw a total of 73 translations processed together with 24 new enquiries. MAGA ran a full stall at Stithians Show, which was busy and supported a stall at Lafrowda
Day. Taster sessions were run for the Guides’ Heritage Day at Goldsithney, for Golden Age, also at Goldsithney and in Camborne, while St Mewan Schools mounted an excellent Heritage Day with plays inspired by the sessions run there by MAGA education officers.

Work progressed towards the Lorient festival presence and towards the Kan rag Kernow competition in November. Language and other aspects of Cornish culture support each other well and we are pleased to be involved in these wider projects. Entries are beginning to come in for Kan rag Kernow, so please spread the word - we hope for a bumper competition in 2011! Radio Cornwall interviewed Elizabeth about the project and we are promoting it widely.

The success of the Council Cornish class has meant that while those already involved will progress next year, a new beginners’ class is being formed in Truro and classes are also being offered in other council offices if there is demand.
The Partnership met in July and discussed the budget and future work programme together with some changes in the way MAGA operates, designed to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness.
