Celebrating 5 Years of #CovHour

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. Both Kate and Emma from Piece of Cake Marketing have been so helpful over the past 5 years especially when we started Covhourlive, a live networking event in Coventry last year with Trish Willets from Coventry Bid, Karen Heap from Socially Shared, Becky Jones from Glory Design, Christine Cooper – Uniquefpgt, Sam De Marco from Uni City Lodge and our newest member Paul Curtis. Big thanks to Becky for the redesign of our logo and the website.

Our next Covhourlive which is also our 5th will be held on Thursday 11th October 2018 from 6-9pm at Old Grammer School. This is a free event and please follow the link to get your free ticket.


Please check out our website – www.covhour.co.uk for our latest blogs – we have visited some amazing independent restaurants with the city centre – if you would like use to review your restaurant please let in touch – jo@covhour.co.uk.

See you on Thursdays on Twitter between 8-9pm including #covhour in your tweets.

A massive thank you for all your continuous support over the past 5 years and look forward the future.

Jo & Covhourlive Team

#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?
