LETTER: Care could not be better at Pilgrim Hospital

Enough people are ready to moan about the care that they get when they are in hospital but I would like to praise them and I thought how nice it would be if that was to be in the paper for a change.

LETTER: We should bring back Party in the Park

We are now coming to the time of year when we know our winter nights will soon be over and we all start looking forward to the summer. Sadly in the last few years people in Boston have been disappointed that the famous Boston Party in the Park was scrapped.

OBSERVER: Blooming heck, just leave the flowers for all to see

It’s getting to that time of the year when flowers and plants are starting to bloom: it also seems it gives some people the idea that it’s also their right to pick these flowers when they’re fully out. Not so! Last week’s report that the Boston Greenscapers planted 8,000 bulbs, but have yet to see any in bloom because people have used their ‘right’ to pick them, has led to signs being put up requesting that blooms be left so everyone can enjoy them. And what happens? Some of the signs have also been stolen!
