Re: Coventry wins City of Culture 2021

Hello @Cleoriff  @viridis  @MI5 how is it going with Coventry being the city of Culture 2021?

 

At the end of Hull being City of Culture 'a Banksy' appeared ... hooligans vandalised it Smiley Mad the police put some sort of barrier around it

@WispaRed7 

I haven't been to Coventry for months @WispaRed7  so couldn't tell you.

I'm there for the funeral of my neighbour next Tuesday but I doubt I will see much of the City. Smiley Sad

Same old shiz as usual Jane.
CoC is appropriate, but laughable.

Re: Coventry wins City of Culture 2021

All I will say @WispaRed7  is this. It's a bit of a tragedy that Coventry, City of Culture, needs to have it's once great football team shove off to Birmingham to play football instead of the Ricoh Arena which was built for them. That's a long story and one I won't be discussing here!! angry devil

Re: Coventry wins City of Culture 2021

Hello @Cleoriff 

 

May I just say that sounds rather quokwifted !

 

The Castleford Tigers, they've been after an up to date ground for many many years ... imhho there is no money in Cas' for it ... down Wheldon Lane was there when it was CRLFC (Castleford Rugby League Football Club) the strip was black & amber horizontal stripes

 

As kids we'd go to Saturday morning dancing class then meet up again under the wooden scoreboard at the railway lines end of the ground

Our previous Senior school reunion was in the Tigers bar

 

Aye all 'R$e about face isn't it ?

Re: Coventry wins City of Culture 2021

And we're just about to have a congestion charge levvied on any vehicle entering the city...
I said before and I'll say it again..
One giant campus.
Congestion charge will 100% kill off the Coventry of old, retail is decaying as it is...
No football stadium, no speedway, no developments for the furtherment of the city for its tax paying citizens...
Just line after line of student accommodation, bars and takeaways
Watch as it's slowly absorbed into "greater Birmingham"

Re: Coventry wins City of Culture 2021

Hello @viridis 

 

The last line of your post is most upsetting

'Watch as it's slowly absorbed into greater Birmingham'

It all sounds like a bit of a tradjedy

The Council's fault ?

 

In Skipton we blame the Council for everything particularly for the very high business rate tax destroying the individual shops / businesses which were there 20+ years ago when I came to live in the town ... & ... the market has been in decline for years ... this is a town which depends upon tourism ! 

 

Sorry to bang on about the town where I live

 

Where is common sense ! ?
