Colchester Council have released details of their new marketing strap-line for Colchester – “Britain’s First City”.
The LibDem/Labour led council announced their decision at the last public cabinet meeting held at the town hall this week.
I believe the newly announced strap-line to be misleading and completely ignores our Roman heritage; our town’s unique selling point. This strap-line is simply a wrong fit for our historic town.
The decision to change it should be given back to the people of #Colchester to vote on an alternative.
Colchester is and will always be known as “Britain’s Oldest Recorded Town” and I feel proud to say this when talking about my hometown to others, especially when travelling.
