This may only be a flash in the pan - let's hope not Thumbs up - but it's good to see Dame Laura Davies, one of our "Famous Coventrians", hitting the headlines (and the middle of the hole!) once more Cheers

One last chance next Saturday (25 Feb) to enjoy Coventry's own Brian Matthew on "Sounds of the 60s" on Radio 2. Wave It will definitely be the end of an era. Sad Information here.

Hi all Wave I bought a couple of bikes off Mick Ives, when he had his shop in Coundon. A lovely guy.
