The town’s Custom House Quay has undergone a £2,500 jet-wash as part of the efforts for the Boston in Bloom 2013 campaign.

More than 15 years’ worth of accumulated grime, moss and weeds were washed away by a specialist team.

Further work in the area, along from the Waterside pub to the Sam Newsom Music Centre, includes an information board about the area’s maritime connections and nautical installations are being sought to reflect the history of the area. This could include an anchor.

The deep clean was carried out by Nationwide Public Area Cleaning Ltd and cost £2,500, plus a £250 biocide application. Boston College contributed £250 for cleaning of the music centre entrance.

An annual clean is now planned, along with regular weed spraying by the Environment Agency.
