24th November 2018 DLOC AGM at The Bettmann Room, Coventry Transport Museum, Millennium Place, Hales Street, Coventry CV1 1JD at 10.30 am to 1.00pm
Message received: Hi John, I've just noticed the AGM Announcement in this month's DM.
The instructions for accessing Coventry Transport Museum for members to park in Millennium Place in front of the Museum are incorrect. The postcode shown is the postal address for the Museum but there is no vehicular access from Hales Street.
Access is via Chauntry Place and the correct postcode for SatNav users is CV1 1JR.
Exit Junction 1 from the Ring Road into Tower Street, left into Silver Street, left into Cook Street and right into Chauntry Place. Entrance to Millennium Place is at the bottom.
Non-marque parking cars need to turn right into Cook Street. Rear of Museum car park is on the left (by arrangement) and public car park on the right.
I attend Cars and Coffee there every month and newcomers always get lost!
I've notified Kevin Bennett and Tony Fardoe but it might be worth adding the directions, or at least the postcode to your events calendar.

Best wishes,
Jim Davis
