We had a successful and enjoyable day at The Community Information Fair in Smithford Way. This was part of Coventry's annual Positive Images Festival. Not only were we able to talk about our aims in CAIF but we saw other community groups and the valuable work they do. We thank Colin Scott and Mehru Fitter for this opportunity and their organisation of the day. See photos in Gallery.
