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
Date issued: 28 July 2020
Cllr Martin Goss, Portfolio Holder for Waste, Environment and Transportation, said: “Our Parks and Countryside teams are usually busy running activities during the summer holidays but as that will not be possible this year, they’ve teamed up with Colchester Museums to bring the great Colchester outdoors to you.
“All the activities can be done at home or at your nearest park or green outdoor space and our Ranger team would love to see your photos by sharing them with us on social media using #WildAboutColchester.”
Councillor Julie Young, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Performance and Deputy Leader of the Council, added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with our Parks and Countryside teams this summer to help promote Colchester's wonderful history and heritage. Watch out for a packed summer schedule of activities that will help bring our history to life through the great outdoors!”
All of Colchester Borough Council’s parks and country sites are open to visitors. However, we would urge the public to abide by the Government’s guidelines of social distancing.
