Cornwall Commonwealth Games Association

Following the refusal of our application for membership in December 2004, by the Commonwealth Games Federation ( CGF ), the former Cornwall Commonwealth Games Association will continue it's fight under the new name of Campaign Kernow. A financial target of approximately £50,000 is sought to legally prove that Cornwall has a legitimate right to recognition, and representation, as a Commonwealth Country.

We will seek a judicial review on the CGF’s decision as soon as is possible and have great confidence in our legal position headed by solicitor, Notary Public Mr.John Kirkhope, who at present is a taking a Ph.D. at Plymouth University into the Laws of the Duchy of Cornwall.
He also advises various Cornish MPs on certain legal issues relating to the constitutional position of Cornwall and has recently written a legal opinion on the status of the Duchy which has been submitted to the Lord Chancellor. Furthermore, he is consulted by the Police from time to time with regard to the application of rights granted under certain ancient charters. Mr Kirkhope is regarded by many as the expert on the Laws and Constitution of Cornwall.

If the unthinkable happens and we do not reach our target – there is no time limit – all donations under £5 will go to the Click House Children’s Cancer Unit at Treliske Hospital, whilst all others will be returned less postage unless advised otherwise.

If we could get just one pound from those that are still alive and were at Twickenham in 1991, and from those younger who didn’t get to see what ‘Cornish lads and lasses can do’ our target is assured. We owe our future generations the best sporting opportunities possible, so what‘s a pound to you ? Of course you are more than welcome to make a much larger donation. I have also today released a new two track CD with £1 per sale going to the fund.

It is a sad day indeed when the so-called “ Friendly Games “ has forced us to take this action but we will not be denied our birthright, go away or take no for an answer. We are now at the point of taking what we hope will be the final step for acceptance into the Federation.

Please help give Cornwall’s future generations the very best we can give them. It’s no more than what they deserve.

Donations can be made by going online at http://www.campaignkernow.com where you will also find further information. Cheques/postal orders can be made payable to: The Commonwealth Games Legal Fund and sent to: Campaign Kernow Trust. PO Box 70. Camborne, Cornwall. TR14 9WZ.
Thank you.

A brief resume of our Campaign:
In October 2002, I was given the vision of taking a Cornish team to the Commonwealth Games. By December 2003 I had put together a quality executive committee, which include international and professional sportsman to form the CCGA. Exactly one year later we applied for membership of the CGF, who refused us ‘ out of hand ’. Since then further researches have strengthened our claim to bring us to where we are now.
