#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?

On Thursday 10th May the #covhour team were kindly invited to take part in our very first Escape Room at Escape Live based in Coventry, Fargo Village. 

So, what exactly is an Escape Room?

Working in a team of between two and six people, you will have just 60 minutes to escape from a locked room before it is too late. With the clock ticking, there is no time to argue. Everyone must work together to find the clues and solve the puzzles so you all make your way out...

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...
