All change at sports arena

THE trustees in charge of Boston’s Princess Royal Sports Arena have decided to leave - but insist they are leaving on a positive note.

The Great Fen Road venue is run by the Boston Sports Initiative (BSI) with funding from Boston Borough Council.

Ahead of the BSI’s AGM on January 26 it has emerged that the current crop of BSI trustees will resign and hand over the reins to a new team.

The centre has had a chequered past with issues over funding and a fall out with the Boston and District Athletics Club.

The BSI trustees say they have come to a ‘natural end’ and are not leaving as a result of a dispute.

Chairman Dennis Bell told The Standard: “There’s no issue. They have sorted out their problems and the centre is settled and running well and the trustees think it is time to move on.

“I genuinely believe the PRSA has got a bright future.”

A joint council and BSI statement added: “BSI trustees will appoint new trustees at their AGM this month. The existing trustees will then voluntarily resign.

“Boston Borough Council has been fully informed of the decision process.

“PRSA is performing as well as ever, both in number of users and financially. Chief executive Richard Harbord said the council was grateful to the retiring trustees for their time and effort over the last few years.”
