POLICE cadets have been lighting up city police stations as part of Coventry’s Window Wanderland.
Coventry Central, Canley, Foleshill and Bell Green are four of the stations to have joined in the Covid-secure pop-up walking trails taking place across the city.
‘What being a cadet means to me’, is the theme of their displays, created at home during lockdown as cadet units currently hold virtual meetings. Two of the Coventry’s 15 units were sent DIY packs to create their designs, which were put up in the stations by local leaders.
One of the final trails features Coventry Central Police Station from 5.30-9pm every day this week until Friday March 19. The route also takes in Stivichall, Finham and Cheylesmore, including Green Lane.
City of Culture Policing Lead, Chief Inspector Helen Kirkman, said: “The Window Wanderland heart-warming project to take part in and celebrate all that Coventry has to offer.
“It’s a wonderful city with some very creative people and it’s been fantastic to see everyone’s efforts on display in the run up to City of Culture activities.
“I’m delighted we’ve been able to include our stations in the initiative and showcase some of the amazing skills of our hard-working cadets.”
Starting in Bristol in 2015, Coventry’s Window Wanderland has been inspired by the success of similar events nationwide, attracting local communities to come together and help reduce social isolation.
