    I'm very calm Jess. Just a shame to witness so much money being wasted on firsts*ite as the town falls apart around it. That money could and should be spent elsewhere protecting Colchester's heritage and history. Check out the latest firsts*ite accounts on the Charities Commission website. It's a veritable public sector gravy train. Stop the funding, repurpose the building or knock it down. No wonder this country's finances are such a mess when we carry on funding these idiotic projects.
    Continuation of cutbacks for essential needs for the taxpayers but the VAF being squandered on instead.
    The more essential needs for fundings could be for the more concerns to helping some of the health services, efforts in trying to battle to prevent any crime increases, and many problems that Colchester has.
    The funding and bill for maintenance to the building in question shouldn't be continued be paid by the public money.
    Better ideas should have been made for the people in Colchester."

ANOTHER giant window estimated to be worth thousands of pounds has been smashed at Colchester’s Firstsite gallery.

The 12ft tall window, next to the main entrance, is thought to have been smashed deliberately with a stone and police are investigating.

A Firstsite spokesman said the exact value of the window was unknown and an insurance claim had been made.

Last October a £70 stud designed to stop skateboarders was used to smash another slightly bigger window, worth £10,000, at the gallery entrance.

More than 140 studs were installed to deter skateboarders from damaging street furniture at the facility but one was unscrewed to carry out the crime.

An Essex Police spokesman said it was appealing for witnesses to the latest incident that happened on the evening of Thursday August 7.

Anyone with information should contact Colchester Police on 101.
