People in Boston are being urged to sign a petition to help a fairer share of the money dished out by the Government.
The Rural Fair Share Campaign has been organised by SPARSE Rural and the Rural Services Network and seeks to redress an imbalance in Government funding for rural and urban areas.
The campaign organisers say people in rural constituencies get approximately two thirds the level of the Local Government Grant given to urban constituencies.
Because of this they have to pay higher council tax from wages that are below the average.
Rural areas such as ours also suffer from a lower level of services than those offered in towns because councils cannot afford to match them.
Signatures are being gathered nationwide and will be returned to the House of Commons by September 30 for Parliamentary debate in the autumn.
The petition is on the reception desk in the borough council offices at Municipal Buildings in West Street and at the Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex.
