A new community hub has been established at Holy Trinity Church in Boston with the unveiling of its brand-new development. Boston Mayflower, D&M Barthorpe, Aaron Services and Kier joined forces to donate materials and service labour to contribute towards a project to benefit the community. The new facility hopes to boost footfall to the church as well as provide a friendly environment for those who may not be able to afford to drink at coffee shops in the town.
Money was also raised from the church congregation and put towards furnishing the facility, which was carried out by other businesses in the Boston area.
Church warden Caroline Jackson said: “This really was an answer to our prayers to help the community. It is incredible to have this facility and it’s a great chance for people to get to know each other outside of worship.
“We would like to remind people that this is not just for church-goers – we would encourage the wider community to stop by for coffee and a chat.”
Holy Trinity Church held a gathering for project contributors on Friday as a ‘thank you’, where they were able to sample cakes and coffee prepared in the new kitchen.
The kitchen will soon be open to the general public and the times and dates will be advertised in due course. It is already enhancing the experience of the ‘Toddlers and Carers’ group who use the lounge on Wednesdays, and the’ Pop In Group’, which is open to all pensioners who come in on Monday afternoons.
