[28 JAN 01] LOOKING FOR IAN GAULT

Hello there from Mesquite Nevada USA.

I am searching for an old friend - Ian Gault from Coventry. He attended Frederick Birds School in the 50s, about 55-59.

Anyone know Ian's whereabouts do drop me a line, or pass my message on to him. Thanks.

[26 JAN 01] LOOKING FOR THE GREGORYS

My wife and I would like to find a person who grew up in Coventry. She now lives somewhere in Bristol but at last reports her parents were still living in Coventry.

Her parents' names are Terence and Audrey Gregory - they have lived in Coventry for many years and we are hoping that somebody knows them or their daughter's whereabouts.

Please email rodw@omninet.net.au if you can help - we have tried most avenues of searching from here in Western Australia, to no avail.

Hope you can help.

[25 JAN 01] LOOKING FOR THE WEST FAMILY

Please can you help. I am looking for anyone who can put me in contact with the West family once at Deedmore Road, Coventry. Their names: George R, Alexandra E (probably known as Elizabeth), their children Jean Elizabeth born 1939, Herbert G R (born ?) and Margaret R born 1941.

I have been searching for years and had no joy. I have just stumbled across this site and wondered if anyone could shed some light as to where they are now.

Many thanks for the provision of this service.

[25 JAN 01] PRIDMORE / PRESIDENT KENNEDY

I went to Parkgate primary school, Coventry (1964-68) and then on to President Kennedy secondary (1968-73).

I left Coventry in 1981 and now live in Pennsylvania, USA.

I often get to the UK but on the last couple of trips did not find anyone. Is there a network? Ex-Crosly House. I recall some teachers' names: Mrs Webb, Saxby, Tricket, Margolis, Bannister, Crosly... If this dates you... e-mail me!

[07 JAN 01] THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Dear Sir,

As a Coventry kid living here in the mountains of up-state New York I can't tell you how nice it is to see a view of the city.

I wasn't born in Coventry but I grew up there and I remember it being a beautiful city and I have the most wonderful memories from childhood there.

I usually make a trip home every other year and like most Coventry people I didn't like the changes too much. There's a lot that should never have been changed but the redevelopment of the lower precinct is long over due - that was badly planned from the start and hopefully what the developers have in mind fits in well with what the city already has to offer.

There was what looked like a hot dog stand in the precinct where there used to be a small part of a red bricked building, which I take was part of a bomb ruin. This small wall was incorporated into a showcase and I was very disappointed to see that it had been removed and as I said, there's now a hot dog stand there, and an ugly one.

It's things like that small part of a bomb ruin that should have been preserved to let us know where we were and where we now are. It was a piece of Coventry's history,and a very important piece.

I still can't believe someone in their wisdom would have it removed, such a shame. It was I thought an important reminder.

Coventry is still a beautiful city, and it's still home.

Sincerely,
