In the wake of the Not in my City campaign, Coventry is now a safer city with significant reductions in violence achieved over the last 18 months. So, with all its rich history and international reputation as a city of peace and reconciliation, it’s also a city we can be proud of, a city which deserves to co-host the London 2012 Olympics.
The Proud of my City campaign is your opportunity to get involved, to make a difference in preparing Coventry for London 2012. Whether it’s taking part in a street clean-up, your own community fun-day, becoming a Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator or just coming into the city to enjoy its attractions and the new Broadgate this website is your one-stop shop for more information on how you can get involved.
Click on the ‘tell us your story’ link to tell us your story of how you’re making a positive difference to Coventry and why you’re proud of your city. You can also send us your photos and we’ll post them to this site and add them to the ‘Proud of my City’ Flickr group.
