There is also a new file for High Beech (1938) while our Coventry expert Stuart Staite-

I’m going to start and end today’s update with a thank you. Firstly, last April, one of our favourite contributors, John Jarvis, passed away. John is sadly missed by all of us and was a great friend to the site. Earlier this month we received a generous donation from Deborah Cherry, in memory of John, which will ensure the site continues for longer. It is a lovely thought and much appreciated by us all. Thank you Deborah.
