#Covhour was started on 22nd August 2013 and was the first online networking hour for Coventry.  It was set up with the aim to help local businesses to connect, to share information and to support each other.  Now with a community of more than 10,500 followers in less than four years, we can safely say that this has been achieved!   

 

The unique thing about this online networking group is that it was started by a local Coventry woman Joanne Brooks and unlike most other groups she does not run her own business she is employed by a business in the City.  When asked about the reason she started #Covhour Joanne replied "I enjoy connecting people and I am so proud of the city having lived here all my life, that I wanted to do my bit and to give something back.  I have met so many wonderful people through #Covhour and although it is a big commitment running the networking hour every week, I just love it!"  

Joanne continues to host #Covhour every Thursday between 8 pm and 9 pm and so why not join in this Thursday?

Can’t believe 5 years ago this week Covhour was created and my Thursday evenings haven’t been the same since.  Do you remember twitter jail when you couldn’t send more than 100 tweets or retweets within an hour?

I have met some wonderful people through twitter and learnt so much about this amazing city.  I’m so excited for Coventry to become City of Culture 2021

During the first few months I had some great advice from Kate Keene from Piece of Cake Marketing. Bot...

University City Lodge (UCL) is one of those options available, and offers some unique and personal advantages for students.

Located on Corporation Street, UCL is located only 8 minutes from Coventry Unive...

I decided this year to complete my fifth Cov Half Marathon.  I have always run for charity and this year is no different, it motivates me and helps to get around the course on the day.  I always run with my husband Mick, who is a great support.

I chose this year’s charity, Breast Cancer Care for my mum who was diagnosed with breast cancer in May last year.

She is such an amazing lady who has gone through her treatment – surgery, chemotherapy & radiotherapy...
