Cost of living support

Colchester Borough Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.


In memory of Her Majesty The Queen

Colchester paid its respect to Her Majesty The Queen.

Join us in reflecting on how Colchester paid its respect to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and marked the proclamation of King Charles III.

Floral tributes

Thank you to everyone that laid a floral tribute at the town's War Memorial in memory of Queen Elizabeth II. We will be taking photos of all the cards and messages and adding these to the Books of Condolence as a lasting memorial. As the flowers die, we will remove these and compost them, in line with national guidance.

The Books of Condolence

The Books of Condolence are now closed and will be stored in the town archives as a lasting memorial.
