A tale of two coasts. That’s how Charles Dickens might describe Cornwall. To the north, the mighty Atlantic: mad, bad and dangerous to know, but somehow thrilling and impossible to ignore. To the south, its more courteous cousin: the English Channel (or just “The Channel” here), less hot-headed and more genteel of manner, albeit with hidden depths. Think Ross Poldark contrasted with Nigel Havers.
Wherever we go, and whatever we do, we have an impact. Let's make sure it’s a positive one. Do it #thekernowway. Clean Cornwall is asking Cornish residents, visitors and business owners to consider how we can all minimise our impact as we step into one of the busiest summers we've ever had.
So whether you are a local, or here on holiday.. we all have a shared responsibility to look after this special place.
