Colchester Standing Together

Colchester is a strong community. Our local community will be standing together in a walk across the borough, to reclaim our paths in a peaceful show of support and unity.  Individuals, families and local organisations will be walking side by side, creating a high visibility presence on a route across the town.   The message for residents and visitors alike is that community safety is everyone’s absolute priority. By pulling together and communicating necessary information and safety messages, Colchester will stand together to help keep its community safe.

The walk will start at the playground behind Titania Close and will finish at Castle Park. Walkers who wish to lay a flower in solidarity on the walk are welcome to do so.
