Thank you to all of you who attended the MAGA conference this year – we hope you found it enjoyable and useful.

Particular thanks go to our speaker, Tony Scott Warren, for an interesting and illuminating talk about Jerriais, the Norman-French language of Jersey, and of the work done now to preserve and promote it. There were many parallels for Cornish speakers in his talk and I am delighted to say that I know that Tony also found the experience valuable and is now in contact with a number of people from Cornwall to look at some sharing of ideas and skills.

The rest of the day was devoted to a look at the work undertaken over the past year and at some of the up and coming projects. It was good to see so many new publications around the room and of course, our own Porth 2, which was launched during the day. Author Will Coleman read one of the stories in which the Grand Bard, Mick Paynter gave a memorable performance as Hanav, together with a number of other pressed volunteers from the audience!

We intend to retain the same weekend for next year’s conference, though the venue and format may change. Thank you to all those who filled in evaluation forms which will help to shape future conferences.
