Last week started with a meeting with the Culture and Leisure portfolio holder - a number of great schemes are being planned for the town, to help mark the Olympics.

Wednesday was a sad day as I attended the funeral of C/Sjt Fortuna in Colchester.

Sunday was a fantastic day as thousands turned up for the Sky Ride in the town centre. I even managed to get a ride on a tandem and meet Olympic cycling star Ross Edgar.

Cllr Rudkin on a penny farthing - almost!

There has been some criticism of the Sky Ride – only by a minority; from the pictures in the local papers it seemed to be a great success.
We are hoping it will return again for the next two years. One lesson we need to learn is a bit more publicity about road closures.
Some people have mentioned that the day was a waste of tax payers’ money; sorry I can’t agree with that. One comment is that it is typical Labour. I would be proud to say that Labour organised the Sky Ride but I have to admit the contract and date were arranged by the previous Tory/Lib Dem administration, but I am sure we can build on this great event.
