The story that Sir Bob Russell, former Lib Dem MP for Colchester, is now offering guided tours of the town is true.
The Facebook page devoted to the tours says:
Enjoy an entertaining and fact-filled walk around the country's oldest recorded town, in the company of former Colchester MP and celebrated town champion High Steward Sir Bob Russell ...
The thing is, there's just so much history in Colchester - far too much to fit in to one walk. So there is now two different versions - A and B - both starting at Colchester Arts Centre ... They will run alternately - so if you enjoyed one, why not try the other?!The suggested fee of £5 per person, but you need only pay what you can afford
The proceeds will go towards Bob's campaign to erect a statue of the sisters Jane and Ann Taylor, who lived in the town. In 1806 they wrote the nursery rhyme Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
