Having most of my youth in the mid 80's thru to mid 90's wasted in various drinking venues in and around Coventry, I am trying to piece together the places and timescale. I recall Park Lane, The Pink Parrot, Busters, The Irish Centre, The West Indian Club, Fatty Arbuckles and a few pubs. I had a mate back in the 80's called Billy and him and his brother were doormen at Park Lane. I also know Nasser who was the resident DJ upstairs in Lane. I loved that club. Has anyone got any photos of the place? When did it close as Park Lane? What about Fattys- when did that open/close down? I also worked at Alvis at Walsgrave for a while until circa 1996 when I left Coventry. If anyone has any similar memories please write them down!

The latest "discoveries" on this forum regarding 'Women's Cricket' and 'St. Faith's Shelter' (not inter-connected! Roll eyes ) serve to indicate what a wonderful platform it has become in people's lives Thanks to our webmaster Rob for creating this and developing it over the last few years Let's all help it to continue to flourish going forward, and to keep it free from any distasteful comments or language which might cause distress to members, or cause them to withdraw from the forum completely, whilst encouraging proper debate of all things Coventry-related and in the wider world

I totally agree with everyone how enjoyable this site is. It has brought back so many happy memories of post war Coventry, so much I had forgotten until my brain received a 'nudge' from someone's post, people and places we knew, games and shops we used as kids, it was certainly a very different Coventry and although I now only have one family member still living there, I am so proud to have come from this historic and occasionally beautiful City so thanks to Rob and all concerned. Thumbs up

On 17th Feb 2012 11:48am, PhilipInCoventry said: Hi all Wave Our history site has passed a milestone where the total membership now exceeds four hundred*. This may be a timely opportunity to make us all aware of the fact that people from all sections of our community use this site, members, members & their families, children & schools. The opening remarks on the introductory pages state: "Welcome to The Historic Coventry Forum. Please come inside and join in the fun. You can discuss any topic you like - as long as it's Coventry related! Do you have a burning question to ask - maybe a local feature that you've always wondered about? Or perhaps you have an answer for someone else's conundrum. Or do you want to discuss something from Coventry's past - or criticise Coventry present - or talk about your favourite Sky Blues players? Whatever Coventry related item is on your mind, this is the place to discuss it." The introduction then goes on to state: "The content on this website is safe for children of all ages. School teachers are welcome to use any of the material contained within as a teaching aid for Coventry's local history and heritage." Please ensure that all posted content is suitable with full regards to the above. Vulgarity, obscenity & provocatively offensive posts are simply not part of our site. Please help us maintain the standards that have made this site so inviting to so many people from all over the world. Thank you & please enjoy Wave ps. *Membership now exceeds five hundred. Wave Thumbs up Oh my ps *Membership now exceeds nine hundred in March 2013. What a pip!

Yes Clive but many of that 2,300 have never posted, many more have just two or three posts although they joined the forum years ago. I am a member of a Norfolk forum that boasts more than 10,000 members but only about 5% post and many never have.

We fully appreciate that the majority of "members" make only a fleeting visit, but the content we posted is still relevant to all Not for one moment do we consider our active membership to be 2,300+ - we know some have decided to leave for varying reasons, some only enter for one particular subject Oh, by the way, it's Cliff, not Clive!

My most humble apology Clive, er, sorry Cliff. So that I don't get confused in future it will be just MR. It's just my age. Blush
