Hey, a huge "thank you" to TonyS, for getting our forum a fantastic mention on't wireless today! Vic Minett on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire gave us a great plug while talking about coffee shops, and specifically mentioned Baz on our Kongoni thread. If this flash player below doesn't play on your computer, then try the link below, which you can use to directly play or download the mp3 that I've uploaded to the site....

Hi all Wave We have been contacted several times by our local BBC radio. Saskia, a researcher contacted us about a year ago asking our opinions regards the issues of hotels in our city. Prior to that, her colleague Marian had asked about public transport in an email to me. Our forum is well noticed. Thumbs up

If we ever need reminding that this Historic Coventry Forum ought to be kept "on track" and decent, it might be this.... Our daughter has recently begun a placement at a Primary School, as part of her qualifying year. Teaching is all she's ever wanted to do, as she loves to help children progress both educationally and as decent human beings. During her first week, which was with 6-7 year-olds, when history was mentioned, she asked the teacher what resources they used. The teacher opened the browser and showed her the familiar cream & brown Historic Coventry. "Wow, that's my dad's website" exclaimed Mandy, proudly! The teacher told her that they particularly enjoy the "Now and Then" pictures, to see how our city used to look. So now we know that children from 5 to 11 years old (and beyond) will be using the site - and many will, out of childlike curiosity, click the links and wander onto this discussion part. These impressionable youngsters, folks, are part of our audience. Connected with this subject is the fact that only children of 13 years and above are allowed on Facebook - for good reason - so that style of social media is not where we wish this site to end up.
