Welcome to Campaign Kernow

After a long rest that was badly needed, I am pleased to inform you that Campaign Kernow has been re-launched to continue the fight for a team from the Duchy to compete in the Commonwealth Games.

Thank you.

Campaigners are considering legal action to allow Cornwall to be represented independently at the Commonwealth Games. Kernow Trust, formerly the Cornwall Commonwealth Games Association, had an application refused in 2004. It is now considering submitting a judicial review against the Commonwealth Games Federation.

They cite a precedent as the summer Olympics of 1908 in which Cornwall competed in rugby.
