Hi there, My great uncle was Eddie Weaver who was Lord Mayor of Coventry in 1982-83. I have some photos and have done some research about him, but would love to find out more if anyone has any information or memories. Thanks Melanie Caldicott

Hello Melanie, welcome to our friendly forum Wave You've posted in a number of threads - let's hope you get some good responses. Several of us have access to the British Newspaper Archives, and there are a few Coventry Telegraph articles relating to Eddie - perhaps you may have seen them already, but if not, I'm sure any informative or interesting ones will be posted on here! I seem to recall playing bowls against Eddie in the 1990s. I think he played at Coventry Parks BC, behind the Charterhouse.

Thanks Midland Red - it's really nice to hear that someone remembers him. I remember him being Mayor as a child the year that Princess Diana visited Coventry - my school visited Caludon Castle I think to see her helicopter touch down. I have a subscription to BNA and have researched there before but I must have another look. Smile

There are quite a number of pictures of Diana's visit on Coventry Digital. Some may be of interest.

Was he related to Terry Weaver, the local councillor from the 70s?

I worked with Terry in the 70s at HSA Bitteswell. IIRC he was heavily involved with the EET&PU?

I hope I'm not sounding a bit naive, but what does EET&PU mean ?

Question

Sorry, that was poor communication on my behalf. EET&PU = Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications and Plumbing Union. IIRC, Terry was Shop Steward and also electrical convenor at one time. In the 70s he worked predominantly on the test bench at Bitteswell so he could take time off to fulfil his civic duties.
