A project aiming to unravel the ‘myths , misunderstandings and prejudices’ associated with immigration in Boston plans to create two new films.

The Alchemy Project is aiming to create two more films about life in Boston and promote its new photography group.

Set up last year, the photraphy walks by the project proved so popular that the group doing them carried on meeting.

Katie Smith, who led the original walks said: “We met several times. The group included representatives of the British and many Eastern European communities and by the end many firm friendships had been made.

“The group decided it wanted to carry on meeting, so John Shaw has taken over as co-ordinator and now a full programme of walks once a month until the end of the year is being planned.

“I feel this is a really positive outcome and is just the kind of thing The Alchemy Project set out to do.”

The two new films being produced by the project will focus on employment, and local schools in Butterwick and Pinchbeck, which will form an over-arching documentary about the town today.

They will include interviews with local farmers and examples of English and migrant school children working together.
