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.

Pru spotted a parking ticket operator on his way out of the council building 81858790_513200355959043_3396903859338084352_nand 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.
