» All roads lead to the Roman Circus ¦ What You Can Get Away With

So, if you live near Colchester (or were watching The One Show last week) you’ll have heard about the appeal to raise funds to save Colchester’s Roman Circus.

Well, as part of the appeal, I’m putting my walking boots back on and hitting the road this Sunday to help raise cash. Along with Jo Hayes and my fellow councillor Theresa Higgins, I’ll be walking a twelve mile circuit that starts and finishes at the circus and also takes in some of the other Roman remains in Colchester, including the walls, the Balkerne Gate and Gosbecks Archaeological Park.

So, if you want to contribute then please visit the Roman Circus website and pledge cash there, or contact me for other details of how you can make a donation.

Or, if you feel like joining us for part of the walk then please come along. We’ll be starting from the Circus at around 10am, and I’ll be updating throughout the day on Twitter, and possibly finding some way over the next few days to use the GPS functions on my new phone to report our location.

We’re also arranging a separate shorter walk around the Roman sites in the town centre, which will be led by Bob Russell MP and will cover about three miles around the walls and other sites. Bob’s happy for anyone to join him – they’ll be starting at the same time, and we’ll be covering the same route for a while – as long as they make a donation of £5 or more to the Circus appeal.

So it’s fingers crossed for good weather on Sunday…

  1. Good luck on your sponsored walk. The appeal now has a Justgiving page at

    http://www.justgiving.com/catuk

    so you can now set up a page for your event and use the site to promote it further to your friends, family and contacts.

    If you do set up a page, let me know and we’ll announce in on Twitter and our Facebook page.

    Thank you.

    PS. The Justgiving page currently has the bare minimum of info – it was created just hours ago. So, I’ll be adding new content later tonight to indicate that it is currently being used exclusively for the Roman Circus appeal, rather than general CAT funds.
