Chance to have a say on how Boston’s £1 million lottery windfall is spent


The steering group behind Boston’s £1 million Big Local lottery fund will be holding a consultation day next month for people to have their say on how the cash is spent.

Taking place on Thursday, October 16, from 1-7pm, in the Age Uk Community Rooms on Wide Bargate – the consultation will feature two presentations at 3.30pm and 5.30pm.

Members of the group will be on hand to offer advice.

Boston Big Local is soon hoping to get its hand on the first lot of money and has used previous consultations to come up with four themes/priorities.

They are improving health and wellbeing, having a more attractive environment,creating great community spirit and encouraging enterprise.

A prize draw of £50 of Oldrids vouchers will also take place.
