Real bread and real sup­port for youths

Coventry Telegraph - - LETTERS -

WHEN I was young, shops sold real bread, made and baked on the premises.

Now in Nuneaton I have been able to buy whole­some real bread again as well as de­li­cious cakes and pas­tries.

This is at The Bak­ery a new ven­ture in Hare­field Road, Nuneaton town cen­tre. They sup­port young peo­ple not cur­rently in work or train­ing by giv­ing them the op­por­tu­nity to learn the art of bak­ing and gain trans­fer­able skills.

So if you want real bread and freshly-made cakes come to Nuneaton and give The Bak­ery your sup­port.

Lady Godiva needs bet­ter pro­tec­tion

I DON’T know why the fence was re­moved from round Lady Godiva. It was put there to pro­tect the statue from be­ing climbed on and de­faced.

Once this graf­fiti has been re­moved, let’s put the fence back round the statue but at 7ft high. Then if any per­son gets over, they should be fined for crim­i­nal dam­age.

Let’s see ball­room danc­ing at fes­ti­val

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to all of those peo­ple who or­gan­ised the ter­rific Godiva Fes­ti­val. There was some­thing for every­body re­lat­ing to mu­si­cal tastes. It would be great to have a danc­ing stage next year. There could be pro­fes­sion­als to show the best of ball­room and Latin danc­ing as well as danc­ing styles from around the world. Roll on next year’s 2019 ex­trav­a­ganza.

Have you seen this rock­ing horse?

HELP needed. A few years ago I made a rock­ing horse for my grand­son but when my son and his fam­ily em­i­grated to Amer­ica they left in a rush and I lost track of it.

I won­der if any­one owns it or knows of its where­abouts?

Sad news for city’s youth orches­tra

I AM stunned and sad­dened to hear that the fund­ing for the Coven­try & War­wick­shire Orches­tra is to be with­drawn from next year. This won­der­ful orches­tra will reach its 60th an­niver­sary in 2021, the year that Coven­try be­comes UK City of Cul­ture.

The mu­sic, the tal­ent, which has charmed and de­lighted mu­sic lovers over the years is surely syn­ony­mous with cul­ture. The ac­tion be­ing taken is a to­tally ret­ro­grade one.

These young peo­ple give their all; hours of re­hearsal and de­vo­tion to beau­ti­ful mu­sic.

Their tal­ent should be en­cour­aged in ev­ery pos­si­ble way, not left to con­tinue strug­gling to sur­vive.

Who­ever made this de­ci­sion, shame on you!

NHS no-shows hit other pa­tients, too

HOW dis­ap­point­ing that so many ap­point­ments are unat­tended (Sep 8).

This is not only a huge cost to the NHS but for pa­tients on the wait­ing lists, such as my own ur­gent re­fer­ral which is in five weeks’ time.

SEPTEM­BER 14, 1988: Coven­try’s West Orchard multi-storey car park lies flat­tened in a heap of twisted gird­ers, bricks and rub­ble. This pic­ture, taken from the Ho­tel Le­ofric bal­cony, shows the dra­matic change as the city pre­pares for a new lease of life.
