Re. Search For Information

A Memory of Coventry.

Hi all,

I'm really hoping someone out there can help me.

I am trying to find someone who worked in Coventry in the 70's.
She did deliveries to a cake shop 19 Acorn Street, Stoke Aldermoor which was for a long time called 'Elaine's bread and cakes' it changed names a few times before that, so it would be great if someone knew the name at that time.
Her name is Christine who drove a blue transit van on her deliveries to the bakery on Acorn street, (and probably a number of other bakers too) from a wholesalers out of town. She was quite tall in her 30's (in the 70's, so I guess she'd be in her late 70's or early 80's now) and she lived with her mother in Nuneaton who had a Mynah bird. Mynah birds talk and require special food, so perhaps there were a limited number of shops the food could have come from? They also need to be fed several times a day so maybe someone helped with feeding? They can live for 10 or 20 years, a long time and an unusual creature so maybe someone somewhere might have known of these people.

I'd really appreciate it if you could help me at all, or ask around or help me get in contact with anyone else who could help. Even the smallest bit of information could lead somewhere!

I'm looking for Christine because she once did an incredibly kind thing for someone and its really important that we find her and thank her, because her act of kindness was so significant to this individual.

Thanks for your help, please, please help if you can, even the tiniest bit of information could help. Feel free to PM me though if possible I'd prefer a direct email to stuffnnonsense@live.co.uk

With thanks to J Wood for this memory of Coventry
