WELCOME – John A paid tribute to Councillor Gary Crookes who had died suddenly on 13th June 2019. John, Mick and Sheila had attended Gary’s funeral that morning. Gary always supported us well and enjoyed attending our meetings. As Lord Mayor 2013/2014, he had been a superb ambassador for Coventry and he will be greatly missed. A minute’s silence was held in Gary’s memory. In lieu of a raffle, donations were requested and an amount of £50 will be donated and split between Gary’s nominated charities which are Diabetes UK and the Dogs Trust. APOLOGIES – Adrian Burr, Pauline Carson, Vic and Bridie Clarke, Bernard and Jane Every, Kathy Jackson, Yvonne Lowe, John Potter.
MINUTES – The minutes of the meeting held on 6th June 2013 were accepted.
MATTERS ARISING – The resurfacing of Mantilla and the footpaths in Finnemore and Dewsbury is complete. It was reported that the gutter on Mantilla towards Hexworthy, is full of stones and John B will arrange for these to be removed. The vegetation on the central reservation of the A45 near to Bathway has been trimmed back. Elsewhere the poppies are spectacular.
