An artist who has been commissioned to paint the community heroes of Boston onto the council’s fleet of bin lorries is in the Market Place today (Wednesday) looking for nominations.

Sarah Brown has joined staff from Boston Borough Council, and the Transported Art team to talk to shoppers and others in the town about who they would nominate as their community hero.

At the time of speaking to the Standard, they had been on the stall since 10am and had received 10 nominations already – they will be in the Market Place until 3pm.

They can be of a singular person or a group of heroes.

To nominate people can share a photograph of their unsung hero with a brief description of their role, along with their own name and the hashtag #BostonHero on Twitter or Facebook.

They can also submit online at or pick up a form from the Boston Borough Council offices, the library or the CVS, and send it in to Transported, Holbeach St Marks Community Association Building, Sluice Road, Holbeach St Marks, Lincolnshire PE12 8HF.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 24 July.
