Council deal lost

BOSTON Borough Council has lost the contract for grounds maintenance with housing asssociation Boston Mayflower.

The new contract has been awarded to Vale Contract Services, starting in April.

Boston Mayflower said the decision was made following a ‘detailed evaluation and interview process, which included Boston Mayflower tenants’.

The council, which has had the contract since 1999, said its seven seasonal parks and grounds maintenance staff will now transfer to Vale Contract Services.
