Boston Town Team’s Jenny Elwick said: “We all had a wonderful time yesterday, the weather certainly didn’t dampen any ones spirits. “It was great to see so many charities and volunteers come together in recognition of the tremendous support they provide within our community.

“No better example of that is Simon Robinson who is one of the presenters at Boston Pilgrim Radio Station, who again kindly volunteered to compare the proceedings yesterday, he did an amazing job.

“Many suppliers provided their products complementary or discounted, Mick George provided bins and disposed of them free of charge, Woodville Road Co-operative provided jellies for the picnic boxes and many businesses provided prizes for our delightful Queen Lookalike winner Doreen Booth.

“Doreen enjoyed her day l would say as much as Queen Elizabeth II enjoyed hers.

“Doreen has a number of engagements lined up, including a trip to Blackfriars Theatre with a friend and a visit to the Mayors Parlour.

“Rather fittingly Doreen is also a volunteer and like the Queen is an amazing lady. Doreen volunteers at the Len Medlock Centre in Boston.”

R U Crafty, on George Street, and Sweet Treats Cake Boutique, on Horncastle Road, shared the £50 best dressed Queen, shop window display.

Winner of the Cake Fit for a Queen was Daiva Capaite from Diva’s Cakes on West Street.

Jenny added organisers were grateful to the Mayor and Mayoress of Boston, Stephen Woodliffe and his wife Catharine.

She said: “They braved the weather and the Mayor kindly crowned our very own Queen look-a-like, Doreen Booth.”

Kirton Town Hall and Blackfriars Theatre also held their own events.
