LETTER: We should bring back Party in the Park


We are now coming to the time of year when we know our winter nights will soon be over and we all start looking forward to the summer. Sadly in the last few years people in Boston have been disappointed that the famous Boston Party in the Park was scrapped.

I can tell you that there are some of us who feel that this kind of event needs to be reintroduced and if re-elected in May 2015, we will certainly put Party in the Park on the council agenda.

We know from talking to hundreds of people in our town that people do want such an event to be re-staged, but we are aware that we need to set up a new events team who have imagination and drive as well as a ‘can-do’ attitude, working together with local police, local businesses and the voluntary sector to deliver this unique event that gave Boston a buzz when it happened. We can work with organisations like Boston College to find a sustainable format that would deliver the aspirations of our town.

We hope you agree with us that we should seriously put this issue at the top of our public engagement strategy and bring Boston alive again in the summer.
