Crews working on a short Second World War romance film in Bostonwere treated to a half-price lunch thanks to Tate’s Fish and Chip shop.

Owner David Tate made the gesture to help sponsor the eight crew and two cast members working on a student enterprise in the town.

Film maker Sara-Lee Simpson said: “It was especially welcome as we’d been filming outside all day and we had somewhere nice and warm to sit and eat. The team was very grateful for his help and support and the kind gesture kept our spirits up.”

Tates will gain a credit in the film titles.

Filming has taken place at sheltered housing The Evergreens in Butterwick, and at Richmond House, and Fred Grant Company in Freiston.

Sara-Lee, of Church Road, Boston, is in her final year at Coventry University studying for a media production degree.
