Coventry Memories website now has 100 Stories!

17 January 2011

The Official launch of the Coventry Memories Website was on Wednesday 1st December at the BBC's Internet Suite in Priory Place, Coventry.  Just over 6 weeks later we now have 100 stories submitted to the site, which is fantastic!

www.coventrymemories.co.uk is a joint project between Coventry Transport Museum and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, and aims to be a unique website where you will be able to browse through hundreds of stories and photographs of real Coventrians through the ages, as well as adding your own memories of anything relating to Coventry.

Craig Joy, Head of IT at Coventry Transport Museum:

“Coventry has a wonderfully rich and varied history, and we recognise that the story of our great City is made up of millions of personal stories and histories, which are in danger of being lost as time moves on. We wanted to create a place where those individual tales can be told and preserved, so we came up with the idea of the Coventry Memories website.As well as landmark events from our City’s past, we’re also fascinated by the smaller events that have been important in peoples’ lives.

Whether your favourite Coventry memory is watching the Sky Blues winning the FA Cup in a local pub, learning to ride a bike at the War Memorial Park, enjoying the Godiva Festival in the sunshine or meeting a future husband or wife ‘under the elephant’, we want to read it.”
