Appeal for wedding memorabilia

MATRIMONIAL memorabilia is needed to help stage a special exhibition in Boston.

The Friends of Boston Stump is organising an exhibition of historic wedding dresses at the church.

A number of dresses and photographs have already been pledged, but the organisers are keen to hear from anyone who would like to offer items for display.

Member of the organising committee Jean Stewart-Smith said: “I hope that lots of ladies of all ages will take advantage of this opportunity to show off their wedding dresses. Lots of people keep their dresses for years in a box in the loft or under the bed. Now’s the chance to display it in the best possible setting - our wonderful parish church.”

In addition to the chance to see dresses worn at the parish church and others from across the decades, a special service will be held for the renewal of wedding vows.

The exhibition runs from May 27-30. The wedding vow renewal service takes place on the opening day.

To get involved or offer a wedding dress call Mrs Stewart-Smith on 01205 723030.
