The History Of Covpark

I recently put together a blog post for the War Memorial Ramp Renovation campaign, where I explained my history with Covpark and what improvement to the skatepark would mean for Coventry.

We’re hoping to raise... Continue Reading →

Those Kenilworth chaps have only gone and bloody won Transform Your Patch!
