On walking over the Town Bridge this week it was nice to see the flower-filled planters near the river wall outside the White Hart Hotel and that, just opposite, the outside area of Wetherspoons public house had been really brightened up with hanging baskets and other floral displays.
Both of these relatively minimal efforts by their staff contribute enormously to the appearance of the town and I would like to publicly thank the White Hart staff and also two friendly and enthusiastic young ladies (Abby and Dawn) at Wetherspoons.
I would also like to thank the owners of the Waterfront pub next to the Custom House Quay for the removal of the mess and the renovation of the outside seating area overlooking the river and including the erection of metal boundary fencing.
This is a great improvement and the removalof a long-standing eyesore.
When we are always reading in the press letters expressing their criticism and negativity about Boston, it is clear to see that with more positive attitudes and a relatively small amount of work (particularly from other stores, shops and commercial premises) that the town could regain some of its former pride and be a more pleasant place to live, work and shop.
