On Tuesday 25th July 2017, President Steve Gage welcomed to the Club, Gilly Mills from the Friends of the War Memorial Park, Coventry, who came along to speak about the Friends Group.

She gave a very interesting illustrated talk with handouts explaining that the group only began in 2006 to promote, develop  and maintain the War Memorial Park. They had successfully applied for and successfully received from the Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery a grant of £2.8 million to refurbish the Park. Many changes have been made since then with £50,000 to refurbish the children play area in 2011.

Rotarian Brian Sharp hosted the speaker, thanking her for her talk and gave best wishes for the future.

Gilly was presented by President Stave with a cheque for the charity for future projects.
