Slack Space 10,000th visitor

A special celebration was held to mark the occasion of Slack Space’s 10,000th visitor in just 7 months! Bob Russell MP for Colchester and Abigail Cheverst Slack Space Coordinator presented Mr Stephen Lilley of Wivenhoe with an original work of art donated by prominent local Slack Space artist Tracey Johnson

Bob Russell said ‘I was delighted to be invited to be part of this special occasion. Slack Space brings vibrancy and the world of art to an otherwise empty shop and helps to enliven the retail street scene in an imaginative way. I’d like to congratulate those who involved in this activity and all those who made it possible’

Cllr Paul Smith, cabinet member for Culture and Diversity, Colchester
Borough Council, commented ‘For Slack Space to have achieved so many
visitors to the town so quickly shows the vision and enterprise of the
volunteers involved in this venue. It demonstrates what the Community
can do, even in these challenging times, to enhance the lives of those
living, working or visiting our town’
