Outdated sign stating “Colston’s” outside Cotham Gardens Primary School.

Reported in the Road Signage category by Tom Crosley-Thorne at 23:20, Mon 8 June 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

This sign clearly incorrectly labels the school under its previous title of Colston’s Primary. Since it’s name change years ago to Cotham Gardens Primary School this sign is no longer relevant. The incorrect section should either be removed or replaced with the correct signage. This issue is also of great concern and should be done urgently regarding the recent events that have taken place around the slave traders name this sign is referring to.
