Godiva Festival 2017        Back to 2016    Forward to 20??

          Draft version subject to checking/improvement!
Once again the Association took up residence in the Greenspace Marquee at the Godiva Festival : 8-9 July 2017.

The 2017 stand in action : 9-Jul-2017

This year we arranged the stand as two L shaped display tables with a central entrance gap similar to 2016, but this year we were in the corner of the tent.  Another change was to put the banner on the stand visible to  entrance.

One highlight was a visit by "Lady Godiva". with photos including John G presenting a copy of a "21 Walks plus" book.

JohnG & Lady Godiva : 9-Jul-2017

Our display included photographs of the 2017 Challenge, shown {on right of photo above) as a single panel telling the story of the late diversion due to a closed bridge on the Kenilworth Greenway. It also mentioned the WP before and after to make the diversion work.

Coventry Council Footpaths personnel installed an attractive display of Waymark and finger posts also a pedestrian gate to welcome visitors to the marquee.

This year we sold plenty ( About £260 worth from "21 Walks plus" books), and many the "Green Book" for the 40-mile Challenge route, a similar take as last year.

Thanks to record number of volunteers  who answered the call this weekend but carry out much good work throughout the year.

Well Done & Many Thanks.

John Green
