Richard is Coventry's latest Good Citizen

Published Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Richard Knowles is the latest person to be presented with a Good Citizen Award by Coventry’s Lord Mayor.

Good Citizen Richarda

Richard has been involved in a variety of community projects including setting up ‘Makerspace’ which allows people in the community to learn new skills and take part in collaborative projects and workshops as well as science, technology, engineering and mathematics education for children across the city. In addition to this, he’s also helped set up a ‘Kids Coding Club’ and worked with local community centres and helped them apply for grants and also devotes his time to help run the Koco Community Centre, where he had the role of Chair and formerly sat on the board of Directors.

Part of his citation which explains why he has been presented with the Award, says: “From the work that Richard does it is evident that he is a passionate and caring individual, who takes comfort in helping people in any way that he can. His actions truly merit this Good Citizen Award.”

If anyone would like to nominate someone in their community for a Good Citizen Award, complete an online form at or pick one up from Council House reception.
