A FIRE was deliberately started near a scout hut in the early hours of Friday morning, firefighters have said.

They were called to the Newbold Path off Oliver Street near the town centre at around 1.45am to a deliberate fire in a small wooden structure near to scout hut.

The crew had extinguished the fire and returned to the station by around 2.15am.

A PROJECT to help unemployed people out of poverty and in to work has secured funding for another two years.

Benn Partnership Centre will receive £15,600 per year from Cemex’s Rugby Benevolent Fund to continue its Beyond Recession Project.

The project has provided what is known as Job Journey Planning and support to the unemployed for the last three years.

The new funding will allow phase two of the project to begin, which aims to ease the hardship of people affected by benefits changes, and help clients become more employable.

THE approval of women bishops has been welcomed by the Coventry Diocese.

Bishop of Coventry, The Right Rev Dr Christopher Cocksworth, said the vote by the General Synod this week in favour of the move would allow “the Church of England to receive the great gifts of women into the Church’s episcopal leadership”.

Reverend Canon Katrina Scott, the Dean of Women’s Ministry in Coventry and Warwickshire, added: “This is a great moment to celebrate men and women working together. Having women as bishops will help us as a whole church better represent God to the nation, and to one another.”
