New Heritage sign

Just a bit about a new heritage signage just erected

Cllr Martyn Warnes had a project which has just come to a final solution

He had a idea to make residents in William Harris Way aware of the very old heritage and the existence of Saxon Dyke system

Some are in South Colchester (The one celebrated here is the BERECHURCH DYKE) which was a protective dyke and Martyn led the campaign to have a sign put up to mark the ancient history of our area

Martyn Warnes said “We as a team, raised the finance from Council funds, and used a local business to make the sign, our council officers advised on location. It is pleasing to see our area celebrating our diverse and interesting
history

In picture is Cllr Dave Harris, Cllr Chris Pearson, and Cllr Martyn Warnes, declaring the sign at the location open and bringing local people, inc school children who pass on the way the school the history under our feet

A cache of coins was found under one of these dykes, as the ancient times proved to be dangerous places to live

Happy New Year

A happy New year 2018 to all my family, friends and neighbours 

2017 was a busy year for me, with being re elected as County Councillor for Shrub End and Berechurch, and arguing for a better deal for our area.

I look forward to a year ahead of making sure our voice is heard at the Council
