THE outdoor delights of Witham Country Park have been given a boost - to benefit both humans and animals.

Two new wooden shelters have been installed at the Boston park, along with several new owl and kestrel nesting boxes.

“Up to 400 people a week use the park so it’s great to see how it is developing,” said Peter Desforges, chairman of The Friends of Witham Country Park which has been co-ordinating the work.

He added: “I’d like to say thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers who contributed to this.”
