St Piran's Day Cornish language campaign

Events are taking place to celebrate St Piran, the patron saint of Cornwall and a campaign has begun to get people speaking at least one word of Cornish. The language campaigners want us to use - meurras, pronounced M'Raz - instead of thank you - and hope "Meurras Day" will become an annual event
