The City of Welcome is being promoted following several years of discussion. An initial meeting at St Mary le Wigford Church in the centre of Lincoln brought together various church and community groups and other partners in the city to discuss the possibility of adopting an initiative first set up in Sheffield to establish Lincoln as a City of Sanctuary. A small working group involving Just Lincolnshire (the Equality and Human Rights Council for Lincolnshire) was set up and after much discussion it was agreed that the above slogan summed up the sentiments of many in the city.
The City of Welcome slogan has now been adopted as the branding for the city’s Community Cohesion Strategy.
