Do you regularly use the path between the two halves of Norman Road (linking Prettygate to Lexden Road)? If you or someone you know does, Cllr Sue Lissimore wants to hear from you, particularly if you have used the route for twenty plus years.

Wondering what to do in the February half term? We still have places left on our Bikeability Fix course, a one and a half hour session to help you and your kids (8+) learn how to fix your bike.

Finally an update on CTC activity in Colchester.
