WELCOME – John A welcomed everyone, with a special welcome for our newly-elected Ward Councillor, Mattie Heaven. John A acknowledged the support SGRA has always received from our Councillors. John thanked all SGRA volunteers who had helped clear the Animal Pound for the re-opening ceremony by the Lord Mayor on Saturday, 14th September 2019. Thanks also to Jim Passmore and Tony Rose (Friends of Kenilworth Road Woodlands), Coventry City Council Park Rangers and to Muriel Stanton for supplying refreshments for the working parties. Mick showed the meeting the map of our proposed heritage trail which would be available on the day. An article has been included in the August edition of the Earlsdon Echo. John A asked as many members as possible to attend the ceremony. We are indebted to Fresh Ideas for supplying a magnificent curtain for the unveiling of the two plaques (1975 and 2019). Coventry Telegraph and Coventry Observer have been advised of the event. It has been suggested that SGRA adopts and maintains the Animal Pound and we are hoping to devise a plan of how we propose to do this. John thanked everyone who had helped deliver SGRA’s July 2019 newsletter.
