Stephen Gray, the local Green Party campaigner, has been asking you to sign a petition to the Council to provide a much safer crossing on the junction of Holbrook Lane with Lythalls Lane and Rotherham Road. Over 200 signatures have been collected and handed over online and on paper. A big thank you to everyone who signed it! We will continue to fight until there is a safe crossing.
Our monthly social gathering on a Thursday evening in the centre of Coventry is suspended for the duration of this crisis, but we are gathering online fortnightly, on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons (bring your own 'brew' preference, tea or beer!).
Get in touch with us to get your invite.
We will notify you on our Facebook page when face-to-face gatherings will resume.
After the sad death of Cllr Sucha Bains, a By-Election was called to fill a vacancy of City Councillor for the Upper Stoke ward. Chrissie Brown, representing the Coventry Green Party, stood as your candidate for the Upper Stoke ward on Thursday 19 March 2020 and received 120 votes (10%). The Labour party candidate Gurdev Singh Hayre was elected with 639 votes.
It was with great sadness that we read of the passing of Cllr Hazel Sweet in early August, who had represented the Wyken ward in the city since 2007. We offer our sincere condolences to her family and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
