Plans are afoot for extra special market festivities in Boston this Christmas thanks to a wealth of support shown by local businesses.

Boston BID is championing a new partnership with more than 100 organisations who have now pledged support for the market.

The Christmas Market, which runs from November 29 to December 2, will be arranged around the newly-refurbished Market Place and includes late-night shopping.

Alan Ellis, chairmen of BID, said: “We are overwhelmed with the support.

“To date, over 100 businesses, charities and residents have rallied together to make it a truly special celebration for the town.

“It all started with an idea back in July. The BID felt it was wrong to do nothing for Christmas in Boston, so we put our heads together and came up with a few ideas.”

Niall Armstrong, Boston BID manager, said: “We approached every shop in town and shared our plans with them. The response was overwhelming. Boston Borough Council is also helping us with the health and safety side of the market, as well as giving the BID the use of the Market Place and fixed stalls stands.”

He added: “Support is also being offered free of charge by local doctors, nurses and paramedics to ensure we have trained medical staff on standby.”
