She let me photograph the lucky dangle charm that hangs from the rear-view mirror in her car and told me to put its picture on the montage .
Margaret and Pru discussed together about where to send me next before deciding to drive me to Coventry Guildhall to see the tapestries.
Margaret wasn’t sure if we were parked correctly but we weren’t going to stay too long and everything was happening spontaneously.
At Coventry Guildhall we met Mick on security. Mick told us that the part of the building with the tapestries was locked up for the night but suggested I return another day for a proper tour of the place.
Pru spotted a parking ticket operator on his way out of the council building and Pru and Margaret asked him not to ticket the car.
There was still opportunity to take some photos in parts of the foyer which weren’t locked up, such as up the stairs and inbetween these christmas trees.
Margaret wrote on the frame for me to visit again when the Council House was open so I could see the community tapestry.
