Pleased coat of arms will return

ALTHOUGH Allison Wright may have a valid point concerning the financial state of our town, I couldn’t possibly agree that the present ‘finger smudge’ qualifies as a ‘crest’.

The beautiful Warrington coat of arms should never have been removed in the first place. I have been reliably informed by a former leader of the council that the coat of arms cost the town around £200. The finger smudge by comparison cost thousands. Our near neigbours St Helens and Wigan have retained their coat of arms and rightly so. In previous letters I have highlighted the question of our town’s heritage, of which the coat of arms is part, and is in keeping with our Town Hall, Golden Gates and our rich history.

But we were not bereft of it. It was always and has been continually used since it was granted. All be it used almost exclusively by the civic officers and for legal notices and announcements. It is the Warrington Borough Council Services Logo that is up for a change when all existing stationary has been used up or so I am led to believe.

Why fix it when it wasn't broken? It is still an unnecessary expense when we are all having to cut back.

The crest was NEVER scrapped. A logo was introduced in its place. The decision is that the logo will be replaced with the crest over a period of time (as "replacements" dictate. There will be NO extra cost the change to using the crest instead of the logo. The only COST incurred was whatever the PR company was paid who came up with something akin to a nursery groups finger painting session.

They may even have to pay a copyrights licence fee to use the Type Face for the lettering in stead of using a copyright free one.

Much of the changes will be letters which are on computer and a logo substitution to the "proper one" is free.
Road signs however will be very expensive because no one will think to put a plastic sticker over the silly ticks. They will buy a new sign.
