A Coventry home page - I feel very nostalgic. Anyone out
there attend Tile Hill Wood Comprehensive School when it first opened in 1960? I grew up
in Coventry but I have been living in Vancouver since 1970 and have visited Coventry on
several occasions over the years. It would be nice to hear from a school "chum"
- my maiden name was ENSOR.
Keep up the good work!

Hello, My name is Michael LaChappelle from Coventry CT in
the USA. I just stopped in to introduce my self. I am 42 years of age, married with 8
children. I presently am the Chief of the fire department. When I was going to school we
had an exchange program with your city of the students. I unfortunately missed out on
visiting due to financial constaints that my parents had. It is very interesting to read
about your programs and hope to check in occasionally.

Is there any chance of you getting some more pictures on
the homepage? For example, a recent picture of downtown Coventry when it is busy. My
brother, Michael Jackson (of course not the POP star) works at Benneton informed me that
things have changed so much in the last few years. The Americans are fascinated about our
double decker buses. Maybe include some pictures of the local buses.

My name is Geoff Bailey, and I'm currently writing a review
of web sites on the internet. I'm also researching my family heritage and my grandmother
is from Coventry so I think it's great that I can actually see some pictures of Coventry.
My grandmother's maiden name was Gerome, and she's a
"war bride". My grandfather was over there for WWII and that's how they met.
Anyway, thanks for the pictures. I plan on making this site one of the hot links off of my
home web page, on my family tree section.
Thanks, Geoff <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Thank you for your e-mail regarding the Coventry Community
Network Pages. I have visited your web site, which I must congratulate you on, and I would
be delighted to include a link to it within my web site. Although Coventry is outside my
constituency [Birmingham West], I feel that your pages provide a very useful
service for everyone in the area, and I will add a link when I update the pages in the
next few days. If you feel it appropriate to include a link to my pages, then you are very

Cornwall and Coventry are twinned cities.
Perhaps it would be a good idea to link our web sites. I
think our respective communities would have much to gain from greater contact.
