Real bread and real support for youths
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I AM stunned and saddened to hear that the funding for the Coventry & Warwickshire Orchestra is to be withdrawn from next year.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.
