Hi paul
Great to hear that you love Cornwall so much - that's the first step to making lots of friends. If you think of yourself as working class then one of the most important activities that working class Cornish people love is supporting the local rugby team - I'd recommend either Pirates for seeing quality games or Redruth for a real Cornish experience.

Camborne & Redruth are built around mostly former mining areas - people tend to be on average less wealthy in these two towns and there are communities that have suffered such poverty since the decline of the mines in the 1880s despite such issues they are very resilient and are some of the friendliest Cornish people. The kinds of issues you might face for example is an above average number of teenage pregnancies - symptomatic of opportunities and expectations for some families.

Both towns are still quintessentially Cornish.

Hope you are aware paulk that by deciding to come here to live you probably take a job that is badly needed by some one already here.
you will put an extra burden on the already overstretched dentists doctors and hospitals. had to the increasing traffic and gidlock , most likely campain for more street lighting produce more waste and generally carry onlike those of you who live where you come from.

Sorry buddy, I am self employed so taking someone elses job isn't what I am going to be doing, it probably would bring money to people in Cornwall realy as I would be paying rent etc.
As for a campain for street lighting and "carrying on like those of you that live where you come from", I think you're being a little closed minded. Sure there are plenty of idiots here in Thanet, But I am sure that there are some everywhere don't you think?
Whilst I am her I would like to say thanks to the people on here that replied in a sensible way ;-)

No Paul believe me if you rent a house here it is highly unlikely that you will be paying money to a local landlord. You will probably rent through an agency who are employed by "second home owners and buy to let" people. As for working for yourself all well and good but my uncle is a self employed carpenter and you would be in direct competition with him thus taking work away from him.
If you really love Cornwall so much please come here on holiday and put money into the local economy.
