Re: Maga under threat

That's why it is so important to create more infrastructure for speakers, not just for beginners. Things they can regularly go and do with the language - apart from attending one weekend per year and organisation & the occasional Yeth an Werin. At the moment actual speakers are still so few that the...

Re: Protection for the Cornish Pasty
