Mystery well-wisher restores memorial

A MYSTERY well-wisher has restored the Bass Memorial in Boston’s High Street to its former glory.

The memorial, in memory of 18th Century Boston explorer George Bass, was in a neglected condition

Now it is has been given a spruce-up, with a fresh coat of paint in original colours.

The volunteer, a resident, took on the task but wishes to remain anonymous.

It adds to the good work by the High Street Neighbourhood Group, which holds regular litter picks. Flowers have also been planted in front of the old toilet block and a new history board is imminent for the area.

George Bass lived and was educated in Boston and went on to become one of the foremost explorers of Australia.
