Food festival and young persons' market for town?
A special project group aiming to help Boston become more prosperous has had its first set of recommendations endorsed by Boston Borough Council's Cabinet.
The Prosperous Boston Task and Finish Group reported on the first phase of its in-depth investigation which has encompassed the retail experience in the town and included markets, toilets, associated services including cleanliness, signage and public order.
The recommendations include:
- Ways for better promoting the town and targeting visitors, residents and inward investors and developers;
- A food festival in the town centre;
- Continuous review of opportunities for improving, sustaining and promoting the market;
- Exploration of potential for a young persons' market;
Some previous findings are already being actioned, such as future public toilets provision. The next two phases of the Prosperous Boston initiative will examine parking, transport and the general environment and then events, tourism and visitor accommodation.
Council leader, Cllr Peter Bedford, said: "The work the group is doing is valuable. There will be some good outcomes from it."
