[30 OCT 96]

I'm planning a trip from Florida to Coventry and cannot determine whether to fly to Manchester or London in light of the fact that I will be taking a train on to Coventry. Both cities appear to be about the same distance from Coventry. I would greatly appreciate any advice regarding which location would offer the best way to get to Coventry by train; and, to be honest, am hoping to avoid London. Thank you.

I am happy to visit Coventry on the web. It is really a good job for someone who wants to see the university and the city. I am going to come there to study because these pages make a good impression.

My name is Trisha Bond (nee Hood) and I live in Ontario Canada. What a great web site.

I'm currently doing some family research and would appreciate any information you can provide. Here's a brief history.

My father is Wilfred Hood (1944) in Coventry. His father is Thomas Hood (1907) who married Frances Simmons (1906) and worked at Cashes in Coventry until the company moved to Canada (1948/9). My great-grandfather's name is Issac Hood of Bedworth who married Anne Bowns of Bedworth. (Her father is Harry Bowns)

Some of my grandfather's siblings are Ernie Hood, Evelyn Hood, Jess, Vera...

If any of these names ring a bell or if you have any stories you'd like to share I would love to hear from you.

Great to see Coventry on the Net. My name is Jim Smith and I lived in St Georges Rd, Stoke and then Bennetts Rd, Keresley before migrating to South Australia. I worked at Courtaulds Acetate, Little Heath and BT in the city. My favourite watering holes were the Lanch, the dive and Sir Colin Campbell.It would be great to chat with anyone from the area.
