Having written to Coun. David Cockburn-Price, chairman of Colne and District Committee, about the locations of bins and dog poo bins throughout the town centre, they resolved to write to him again to see if their posters could be displayed more widely and also to ask the committee to consider the provision of dog poo bins.

Each participating school (West Street, Trawden Forest, Christ Church and Park Primary) had also come up with logo ideas for CJC. It was agreed that elements of each should be taken forward by Colne Town Council’s graphic designer and that the logo should be considered again at the next meeting.
