Peace Orchard funding approved

We are excited that Postcode Lottery Trust and Big Lottery funding has been agreed for a Peace Orchard project on a Coventry City Council owned site in Coundon Hall Park. Students at nearby Cardinal Newman and Coundon Court secondary schools will research the history of the 1944 Normandy Campaign, the significance of the Normandy apple orchards and links to Coventry’s role as the city of peace and reconciliation. They will create a story that will be told on line and on-site amongst the trees and shrubs to be planted by schools and local communities in November and December this year.
