[27 NOV 96]

Hello. We think this is a great site idea.
We are Graham and Linda Williams. Linda was formerly Reading. We have lived in Edmonton, Alberta Canada for 21 years but we are and always will be Coventry Kids. We were born in Coventry in 1943 and still have many relatives living in Coventry and area, as well as in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Graham lived in Styvechale and Willenhall and attended Whitley Abbey School until 1959. Later he apprenticed at BSE Parkside. Linda attended Barker Butts School until 1959. Later worked at Carbodies and Motor Panels. After marrying and having 3 daughters, we moved to Hinckley (Glenbarr Close) until moving to Canada in 1975.

We would love to hear from anyone who may remember us or who would just like to talk about Coventry and area. Our e mail address is

I'm in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. My wife was born in Leamington Spa, and Coventry is the closest website I can find, so I'll address this to you.

A year ago, on a trip back to Leamington, my wife's parents brought her back a calendar showing street scenes and streetscapes in Leamington Spa from about the turn of the century to date. Obviously, this calendar is now out of date, and I'd like to find her a new one. If anyone can help, please leave a message on this web address, since I don't have one of my own. Any help would be appreciated.

Postscript: Leamington Spa-area residents might be interested to know that there is a Leamington (pronounced LEEMington, here) about 40 miles southeast of Windsor, Ontario, on the shores of Lake Erie. I presume it was named by someone from the Warwickshire area.

Hi, my name is Gail and I have a pen pal exchange from students in Coventry going here in Indiana, USA. If there are any children who would like to have pen pals from the USA just email me back. I have 3 kids, Daniel who is 7, Melody who is 10 and Kim who is 12. I also have the exchange going with kids from our 1st grade school (7 year olds) and 4th grade (10 years). And I may even get 6th grade (12 year olds) going.

Thanks. Love the web site!

Hi Coventry

I am a Coventry kid now living in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I was born just before the Second World War, in a nursing home that was situated at the top of Bishop Street close to the Canal Basin. I lived in Honiton Road for twenty years before getting married and moving into a house at Mount Nod. I served a five year apprentiship at the General Electric Company as a Draughtsman from 1953 to 1958 and continued to work there till 1964. I then moved to the Damiler/Jaguar at Radford, in the bus design office, before moving to Burgess products in Hinkley as an Industrial Noise Consultant. I then went to work at Alfred Herberts in the electronic design department and then eleven years for Coventry Industrial Designs as a Senior Process Engineer.

I left Coventry in 1981 for Canada. Now if there is any one out there that remembers me, or would just like to know a little more about Canada or Coventry, just email me, I will be pleased to communicate with you.

Hi, my name is Bruce. I am an American from New York. I will be marrying a Coventry girl this November. We visited Coventry this past summer for her sister's wedding. I had a great time in Coventry. I got to go to some neat little towns like Monks Kirby, Kenilworth, and Warwick. I can't wait to go back. We really enjoyed your website, it was fun to surf around. Keep up the good work.
