#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?

First on the agenda was feeding the children, so whilst they ate pizza and burgers we treated ourselves to a Prosecco from the Prosecco Bus and Beer from Truth & Alibi. On stage we watched the chefs from Hampton Mano...

Our second stop on our trip of Coventry’s eateries took us to Habibi.

Situated on Far Gosford Street, Habibi is just a stones throw from Fargo Village in one direction and a short walk from town in the other direction.

The restaurant has been open for 15 years and brings a little taste of the owner Manal Timraz’s homeland, Palestine. Everything in Habibi has been sourced by Manal from countries such as Egypt, Morocco and Palestine and we have to say what she has...
