New project needs your memories


Boston Borough Council is asking for memories of the town as part of a new heritage signage project. A drop-in will be held at the Guildhall and Fydell House on Wednesday, August 19, where people can take along old photos and stories of Boston’s past.

The council is working with Heritage Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce on the project – called Explore and Discover Boston.

A council spokesman said: “There are also plans for a young person’s postcard design competition to show off their favourite place to visit Boston. The winning postcard design will be made into a real post card and will be available in some of Boston’s key heritage sites.

“And watch out for a social media campaign - #MyBoston - where selfies outside your favourite heritage spot in Boston and the surrounding area can be posted.”
