A council spokesman said the display told more than the story of Christmas in the town and that many of the pictures demonstrate the community effort and indomitable spirit which cleaned Boston up so effectively and so quickly immediately after the recent flood.

Mayor of Boston, Coun Paul Kenny, officially declared the exhibition open, and said he admired one of Memorial Gardens with poppy wreaths and Christmas lights, with the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War being marked next year.

He said: “I am delighted that Chris has been able to capture the magic of Christmas in Boston despite the recent floods. His photographs demonstrate the amazing community spirit in this town which pulled many things back to normality so quickly.”

Mr Lewis said his favourite shows Christmas lights reflected in the remnants of flood puddles in Church Street – the lights blazing at Church’s Restaurant, which was one of the first to be open for business after the deluge. A broom propped against an outside wall the only other indication of the drama.

The exhibition is open Monday-Thursday, 8.45am-5.15pm and Fridays, 8.45am-4.45pm.
