Celebrating 60 years

Last weekend, Mebyon Kernow members, councillors and supporters gathered at the Lowenac Hotel in Camborne to celebrate the first six decades of the Party for Cornwall.

It was enjoyable with entertainment from a range of fantastic Cornish musicians and poets, which included Bagas Crowd, An Dysken (above), Kowethas and Pol Hodge / Bert Biscoe.

The event was opened by MK founder member Ann Jenkin, who was recently elected as the Party’s Life President. Ann is the widow of Richard Jenkin, a fellow founder-member and a former Chairman of the Party. She is also the mother of four children – two of whom, Loveday and Conan, have stood as parliamentary candidates and serve as local councillors.

We intend to mark our anniversary year in a number of ways. The commemorative publication is at the printers and should be ready for circulation in a couple of weeks and it is also intended to mark the tenth anniversary of the delivery of 50,000 declarations for a Cornish Assembly to 10 Downing Street.
