The From Town to Town project is proud to be working in partnership with a number of different organisations across Nuneaton. Many thanks to all involved, without you none of this would be possible!
Nuneaton Town Supporters' Co-operative
Nuneaton Town Supporters' Co-operative is a Co-operative and Community Benefit Society whose aims and objectives include gaining influence within Nuneaton Town FC and building relationships with both supporters and the local community. The NTSC was responsible for securing the Heritage Lottery funding and has been working tirelessly to bring the project to fruition.
Nuneaton Town Football Club
It was way back in 1889 that the history of senior football in the town was about to change forever. We now know that that was the beginning of Nuneaton Town FC, as we know it today.
The 2014/15 season marked 125 years since our forefathers, Nuneaton St.Nicholas, were formed. This milestone was the catalyst for the Supporters Co-operative to launch their ‘From Town to Town’ Project to chart the history of the Club.
Nuneaton Town FC are extremely proud of our heritage and our place in both the town’s history and in its future. We would like to thank the Supporters' Co-operative for all their hard work and the club will continue to support this fantastic community project.
North Warwickshire and Hinckley College
We have been working with talented students from North Warwickshire and Hinckley College to conduct interviews with former players, supporters and others with links to the Club. Special thanks to Spintop Media (students from the college's commercial divison), who have produced our branding and this website.

Chilvers Coton Heritage Centre
Formerly a school, Chilvers Coton Heritage Centre is a Grade II Listed Building, with an extensive collection of documents, photographs and artefacts. A large number of local user groups hire rooms for meetings, and local schools take advantage of the Beryl Kerby Schoolroom for Victorian lessons.
Oak Wood Secondary School
Oak Wood Secondary School provides education for children with complex learning difficulties. Through the From Town to Town project, a class of pupils in Year 10 has learnt how to record and edit interviews. The pupils then visited the Club and interviewed a player, the manager and some supporters. Later, some more supporters attended a whole-school event, showing memorabilia to over 100 pupils in a morning, which was filmed by the Year 10 pupils. The smelling cubes (with scents like the trophy room and the pitch), pre-decimal coins and the noisy wooden rattle all proved very popular!
The Year 10 pupils are now working with students from North Warwickshire and Hinckley College to edit the final materials, which will soon be shown to Oak Wood pupils' parents.
