People who live, work or study in Colne are being asked to think of some new slogans for boundary signs at gateways into the town.

Colne and District Committee wants to replace the out of date Britain in Bloom slogans at the base of five Welcome to Colne signs and install five different messages.
Councillor Sarah Cockburn-Price instigated the project and she said:

“Our five gateway signs need improving and it gives us a chance to provide informative, intriguing, quirky and characterful signage on the key gateways into the Town.

“It’s fine for some of these signs to raise a chuckle," she added.

Suggestions already put forward by the Committee to get ideas flowing include:
•    Bonnie Colne on the hill
•    Market town since 1120
•    Where the band played on
•    Never far from a hill
•    Home of Great British R&B.
Sarah added: 
“It’s a chance to get creative and share what’s special about Colne.

“We would like five different messages of no more than five words each which show how proud we are of our unique town.”
Local people have until 5pm on Friday 18 November to email their ideas to: and Colne and District Committee will look at suggestions at their meeting on Thursday 1 December meeting of Colne and District Committee.
