After many years of campaigning and considerable restoration problems, Copsewood Grange was formally re-opened by the Lord Mayor of Coventry on Friday 25th January 2019.  The building was restored by Morris Homes. 

As well as re-opening the building the event also saw the unveiling of a Blue Plaque revealing a little of the history of the building.
