Colchester Civic Society and Business Improvement District join forces to revitalise unloved space

 Colchester Civic Society and the Colchester Business Improvement District (BID) have collaborated on a commendable project to revitalise Painters Yard in Colchester. This exemplary collaboration exemplifies the power of collaborative efforts in transforming vacant spaces into valuable community assets.
