Boston’s historic buildings and proud past have been spelled out in a filmed tour of the town, which has been released to view for free.
Alan Tosney, of Leverton, has shot A Filmed Tour of Historical Boston and had a preview screening in front of members of Boston Town Area Committee (BTAC) and other councillors.
BTAC had given him a £740 grant to help fund the film, which can now be viewed on the borough council’s YouTube channel.
The narrated film will be made available to schools and drew on in-depth research to reflect Boston’s very beginnings and some of the more modern aspects of the town.
BTAC Chairman Coun Mike Gilbert congratulated Mr Tosney on his film, saying he found it ‘hugely informative’ and felt sure anyone watching it would feel ‘compelled to visit the town’.
Mr Tosney is a founder member of Leverton History Group and has helped produce two books and a film about the history of Leverton.
He said: “I am very grateful to BTAC for the assistance they have given me and thought it important that they should see first what I had done. I have made the film available to the council and hope it will help promote our beautiful town of Boston which is so rich in history. I think my film shows what a vibrant community we have.
“The equipment I now have means that I can complete other film projects which I have in mind. I would like to feature Boston Stump.”
DVDs of Alan’s film are available from him, priced £10. Money will help fund future projects. Personal copies of his other film on the centenary year of St Thomas’s Church are available for £5. Money raised from this will go to the church.
