#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?

We all signed up months ago I don’t think we had all thought about the challenge that was head of us. As the weeks went by and the sponsorship started rolling in it began to get real!

One of the advantages of being part of the #covhour team is that we get invited along to events. This time it was for the launch of Bistro Pierre in Cathedral Lanes, Coventry City Centre. 

​​Jo, Kate and Christine hot footed over to new venue which is one of a few new openings in the development. ​​

On arriving at the venue the décor is impressive, a spiral staircase leads up to a bright and airy restaurant. ​

We were treated to a glass of fizz on arrival! We all...

Last night we were lucky enough to attend the production of “We’ll Live & Die in these Towns” at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry. Despite following the band & attending gigs, I would not describe myself as an avid Enemy fan.
