As part of obtaining Objective One funding from the EU the government agreed that some of the money would be spent on developing the Celtic Cornish caracter.

Has anybody even thought about getting objective one funding for Cornish wrestling.
The money is supposed to be spent on projects that enhance our Celtic Cornish character, this would seem a prime candidate.

Governments have a responsibility to ensure that we have access to our culture and history in school!

Is that the case with wrestling?

What of hurling, is that to be left to die out for want of funding and promotion in our schools?

Gordon Bennet, what a waste of taxpayers cash.
I used to run a martial arts class in Pz, why didn't I think of calling it Cornish Martial Arts and milking the fund?
