Coventry held its sixth cohesion awards earlier this month with fourteen organisations shortlisted in seven categories.

Dozens of organisations entered the awards which have become a regular feature on the city’s calendar.

The awards celebrate projects which build upon the city’s heritage as a city of peace and reconciliation. The awards highlight examples of good community relations recognising what local people have done for Coventry to remain a cohesive city.

Cllr Abdul Khan, Deputy Leader of the Council, said: “I’m proud to be involved in the cohesion awards. We have a rich and varied list of entrants.

It reflects the work being achieved at a grassroots level and they all fully deserve to receive the recognition.”
