Will shrines remain at CCFC? Letters

RE: The deplorable situation at the Ricoh Arena I would like to raise a side issue, which is extremely important to some local people.

For decades, hundreds of deceased CCFC fans had their ashes scattered at Highfield Road by relatives. When the club moved to the Ricoh, consecrated turf blessed by the Bishop of Coventry became the central part of a memorial garden at the Ricoh.

Most weeks you will see people pay their respects at this memorial garden. Hundreds of fans also bought bricks with names inscribed, often the names of deceased CCFC fans.

Now that Sisu have withdrawn offices and shop from the Ricoh Arena and talk of finding a new ground, are there plans to continue these precious family shrines? Rod Metcalf, By email.
