No justification for Warrington crest change

I CANNOT believe that Warrington is changing its crest again. How can this be justified financially when the council says there will be a £12 million shortfall in the budget.

I didn’t agree with changing the crest in the first place.

Now, having spent all that money and given the current climate and how many staff members have lost their jobs, who has seen fit to pass this?

A survey may have been completed as to people’s views on the crest but were these same people made aware of the cost implications?

Especially following on from the impact on services across the town, which will undoubtedly be cut.

I don't think that the Warrington Crest is being changed and is used by the Civic Officers on their stationary and livery. However it is my understanding that the change may occur to the Warrington Borough Council Logo and I agree that it doesn't need changing except that it might not at the moment match the Red flag of the current majority of councillors at the Town Hall, no political bias intended just purely an observation of fact.

The Crest isn't being changed - it was when Warrington became a Unitary Authority some years ago... nor was it got rid of under the last administration it was retained ... so nothing new there. No costs have been incurred, as stated during a recent Full Council meeting, details of which were reported in the Warrington Guardian...end of

You are not very clear with regard to communicating in your comment Geoff. I am, aware, that the Crest is not being changed or altered. I said as much in my comment.

Apologies for that I was just confirming about the crest. As for the Logo I'm not aware of any planned changes for it either especially as it would cost money to replace signs etc regardless of any flag flying :-)

Is the Warrington Borough Council just phasing out the "Nike Wings" logo/branding then? Maybe that is until the residual stock of headed stationary has been exhausted and the signage replaced when no longer viable or needed i.e. when it no longer serves its purpose. Will the Warrington Borough Council corporate colours also change from those of your political opponents and Warrington Wolves, (Yellow(or Primrose) and Blue), to those of the majority party of members of the Warrington Borough Council, (Red)? I reiterate that again there is no party political bias intended in my comment, just pure observations.

SAC - I've heard nothing along the lines of a respray - may be rumours started by the Man U contingent now that City are on their heels - they are fed up of hearing Blue Moon and see Shades of Blue around the Town?
