In addition, as a Freeman of Coventry and a long-standing member of a number of local organisations supporting the city, he has a keen interest in Coventry’s history and a deep commitment to its future.

John is delighted to have been involved with Historic Coventry Trust since its inception. He is extremely excited by the opportunities to realise the full potential of The Coventry Charterhouse, in particular, for the benefit of the City and its residents.
