The Lord Major of Coventry has revealed that he will be attending the Play the Game conference throughout the week at the Cities University and cathedral.
Jack Harrison, who was elected Major on the 20th of May 2009, revealed to CU Today that he was in full support of the sporting conference and will be making the most of the event by attending as many sessions during the week as possible.
“I think it’s a tremendous achievement for a City like Coventry to capture the week long event Play the Game. A lot of cities bid to host these games and I’m really pleased that the play the game conference is being held here in Coventry.”
“I have been given a copy of the programme and I will be dropping in on some of the seminars that take place, as long as I don’t have to run around a track!”
He confirmed, “I’m definitely supporting and I’ll be demonstrating that by popping into some of the events.”
The Coventry born major is delighted his home city will be hosting such a prestigious event and he feels the ‘Iconic’ cathedral and other facilities in the area are part of the reason why Coventry has become the first non Nordic country to host the conference.
“I think it was chosen primarily because of the location in the centre of the UK and the facilities we have got including our great cathedral.”
He added, “Many people will not only come for the conference, but they will also have an opportunity to see our city and its history and I’m sure that will be a good experience for them both from what they get out of the conference and their lasting impression of the city of Coventry.”
