The Cornish pressure group Kernow Calling has received confirmation from Malcolm Bell (head of Visit Cornwall and Cornish Tourism) that the term county should no longer be used when referring to Cornwall, instead the terms Cornwall, Cornish, Duchy and region will be used in all comms and England references should be avoided…
I have been on leave last week plus the odd day and it has been very busy for the team as its our frantic period, so sorry for the delay in responding
We finalised the revised “about cornwall” section on vc.com on Tuesday and all references to county will be removed and an increased emphasis on cornish celtic heritage, industrial legacy and the cornish language etc. It should be all up on the site by the middle of next week.
in addition, I have briefed the marketing and communication guys that the term county should no longer be used and instead and the terms Cornwall, Cornish, Duchy and region will be used in all or comms and England references should be avoided and only used if we have to
