First duties for Boston's new Mayor
Boston's newest Mayor - the 483rd - fulfilled his first public duty when he visited Freiston Hall Children's Residential Home for its open day.
Cllr Bernard (Brian) Rush was able to see the home which specialises in working with and caring for children and young people with mental health behaviour difficulties and met staff and was shown the home and grounds.
He heard that the school at the site delivers formal education mixed with outdoor learning, outward bound training, forestry and environmental studies.
Outdoor activities in the grounds include an aerial rope course, rock climbing tower, outdoor musical instruments, a den-building garden, wildlife ponds, birds hides, kitchen garden, outdoor nature classroom, a camping area, barbecue area, mountain biking and archery.
The new Mayor's second engagement was to present the Freedom of Kirton to Cllr Richard Foster, who has been a Kirton Parish Councillor for 45 years.
