LETTER: Great to see a big crowd at Boston’s remembrance events


We were truly delighted to see the large crowd coming out to remember and salute the gallant people who have served our town over the last 100 years during the Remembrance Day service on Sunday.

It was pleasing to see the number of people who have taken the armed forces to their hearts and who wish to be a part of important days like Remembrance Sunday and Armed Forces Day.

We now believe that the town should go that little bit further and put large poppies on the lampposts.

Many towns like Camberley and Bromley already do this. We think that Boston Borough Council and Lincolnshire County Council, working together with the Royal British Legion could develop this idea for Boston.

We could ask the people of Boston as well as the businesses to help finance such an idea.

It would show that Boston is prepared to go the extra mile to remember those who served us and made the ultimate sacrifice for our town.
