Hello, my name is Felix, I’m a volunteer for Mor Media charity.
Over this past Half-Term week, I’ve been helping with the Community Stories exhibition in Kresen Kernow, Redruth. I’ve learnt a lot about the community and what it means to be Cornish during the pandemic. Originally from Scotland, I was not born and raised here, but over the years since my family settled, Cornwall has become my home.
It was interesting to hear about Cornwall from people who were born and raised here, and how the pandemic has affected their lives. It is not often talked about in mainstream media how Covid-19 has interfered with people's everyday life, so it was interesting as well as tragic to learn about just how bad it’s gotten for people over the past 2 years since the first lockdown began.
