LETTERS: Your Say


Noel gave us a little extra THE announcement in the Coventry Evening Telegraph September 8 on the death of ex-City manager Noel Cantwell was very scant indeed when you look at his record as manager of Coventry City Football Club.

His contribution to the game was to take City to the lofty position of sixth place in the biggest league in English football and taking over from Mr Jimmy Hill which was a hard act to follow.

His distinguished career with Man United and his country Ireland was no mean achievement. To respect his contribution to the world of football it would have been fitting to create a profile in his memory.

Coventry eventually dispensed with his services, however, the same can be said about most City managers. Noel gave us that little extra which is clearly missing today. Many supporters will remember with pride.

Proposal for Whittle Arch is a mistake YET again we see Cllr David Arrowsmith (Cabinet Member for Urban Regeneration) desperate to have his photograph in your paper, this time, regarding the extension to Coventry Transport Museum.

Unfortunately, this is the same Cabinet Member who is in danger of deterring people from actually visiting the museum by allowing buses to travel under the Whittle Arch.

Cllr Arrowsmith stated that he was proud of our transport museum, as am I. However, I am also proud of the Millennium Project and still believe his intention to dig up part of it to allow buses through will be a mistake he, and the people of Coventry will regret for many years.

Bat swooped at my window

ON Monday night I was lying on the settee with my head turned to the television. I never draw the drapes so the windows in the bay are lit by the bright streetlights.

I had my room lights on and, as is usual after night has fallen, moths are attracted. One had rested against the glass and seemed to come slowly towards the window.

Then, this pinkish-brown object engulfed the moth and I saw its veined wings flatten against the glass and this mouth with needle-like teeth took the trapped moth and then it was gone.

It was a bat. I haven't seen one for many years but I remember seeing a bat like this when I was a boy.

This bat seemed rather large, having a wing span bigger than the span of my hand. It also had large ears. Would any reader know what it was from my brief description?

Heritage days a credit to city

WHAT a great two days was to be had with the entertainment and the buildings open for the city's Heritage Weekend.

Despite the horrible weather, CV One came up trumps and I must praise Kate Walters, who was a guide at the Council House on Saturday.

Greeting everyone with a smile and making us feel welcome, she couldn't do enough for visitors

Credit should also go to the Playbox Theatre Company which on Sunday put on an excellent performance of its play showing the life of Mary Ball, who was the last woman to be hanged in Coventry.

The young cast did their theatre company proud.

Cheers to them and Kate for a brilliant weekend, and let's hope next year's is as good.

John K, Keresley Heath.

...I READ with interest your article headlined City's Hidden Treasures which included the Old Grammar School and the Tudor houses in Bayley Lane.

But these treasures along with Whitefriars, should not be hidden. They should be restored, cherished and put at the forefront of our tourist initiative.

The beauty, historical interest and uniqueness of these buildings should not be left to moulder away.

Each year the Heritage Weekend shows up some part of our neglected inheritance. We had to walk past the old Court Room, closed and abandoned. …
