New day centre is proposed

ELDERLY people in the Boston area may soon benefit from a new day care facility, after plans were submitted for a new centre in the town.

The owners of Ridlington’s Wine Merchants, off Sibsey Road in Boston, have applied to Boston Borough Council for planning permission to change their premises into Ridlington’s Day Centre, in a bid to provide facilities for elderly people.

If it is approved by planners at the authority, the centre will provide recreational amenities and a rehabilitation centre, and facilities for cooking, washing and doing laundry.
