A specialist abseil team will help spruce up the river side of Boston’s Assembly Rooms.

The landmark building was snapped up in November 2012 and the owner has since been in discussion with scaffolding, crane and hoist companies to find a solution to paint the side which faces the White Hart.

An abseiling team that is normally employed at North Sea Oil platforms will now carry out the work in a four-week period beginning in early August.

The work should complete the redecoration and renovation work already done to the other ‘elevations’.

Director Matt Clark said: “We have been focused on completing the building works for some time and had hoped for a solution before now.

“I am happy with the improvement works to date, and that the property is back to being the focal point of the marketplace. But I look forward to this stage of the works being complete, and to have a restored riverside elevation to welcome visitors to the marketplace too.”

He added: “We will not stop here either, with plans of introducing a balcony to the site, reinstatement of original shop front and conversion of the former public conveniences are all being progressed and scheduled.”
