Help plan new community events

There are a growing number of events planned for Boston now that the better weather has arrived, but councillors have ambitions for even more... and want you to help. Boston Town Area Committee (BTAC - the town's parish council) wants to hear from volunteers prepared to sit on a new committee to help generate community event ideas. The committee will be public-led - with at least six members from the public, sitting with three councillors. The aim will be to generate and develop events for all the community which BTAC may be able to help facilitate. It has been encouraged by community engagement by other volunteer groups - such as the Christmas in Boston group which is working to enhance the town's Christmas lights.

All suggestions, large and small will be welcome, especially those which could develop into popular annual events.
Anyone interested in helping form the new committee should contact Janette Collier on 01205 314 227 or email
