Colchester Borough Council is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.
Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
Colchester Borough Council and Tendring District Council, in partnership with Abberton Rural Training, are giving away free planting kits that contain everything you need to start growing food at home.
We have had a fantastic response from people registering to receive one of the 150 free planting starter kits.
In fact, so many people have registered that we have now closed the registration forms so we can start to process the applications and start sending packs out.
We will reopen the process again if more starter kits can be made available.
If you receive a planting kit, don’t forget to share your experience and photos on the Enjoy Colchester Facebook page using #stayathomegrowyourown
For more information, support and fun ideas to support your Wellbeing, visit the Livewell Campaign.
The Stay at Home, Grow Your Own project is funded by an Essex County Council Public Health grant.
