Cornish Mutual regularly circulates press releases on company, insurance and, where appropriate, rural matters.

Our news gives you an insight into who we are as a company and how we approach life.  We want our Members to know where they are with their insurances and Cornish Mutual so we like to share all sorts of stories, news and information on our people, their achievements and activities. 

Alongside this we give helpful advice on key topics that we believe will be of interest to our Members so they are clear on where they stand with us.
