    Wasps the ‘new pride of Coventry’, boasts key economic event for city’s great and good

    This was posted by the news bot in the local news section yesterday but went unnoticed so I've reposted it here in case anyone wishes to comment.

    well after reading the article I'm still not sure where wasps come into it.

    it looks to me as if someone who wrote the invitation email follows wasps as there is no real connection between the event and wasps other than the last part.

    is this yet another play by wasp pr teams to dig out CCFC and Cov Rugger club?

    Or are we to believe that wasps are saving Coventry future?

    Its an economic event,
    I think people would rather listen to the 'rise' of Wasps within Coventry rather than the 'fall' of CCFC.
    Imagine the Tim Fisher lecture on "how things can go badly wrong if you have incompetent management"

    Aren't Wasps apparently sponsoring the culture bid? It will have them all over it throughout.

    If they are sponsoring it then rightly so ?

    Maybe one of the judges can point out the irony of them sponsoring it ;)

    Les has done an article in the Observer .
    I didn't quite see it through to the end but wonder If he referenced the accounts ?

    Its laughable. Have a civic gathering to celebrate their 150th anniversary only 3 years of which have been in Cov.

    I think this makes answers your point

    April 28th Cov v Hull

    The occasion will also mark a handover of the City Of Culture mantle from Hull (2017) to Coventry (2021) with the Lord Mayors of both cities in attendance.
