Come and clean up with us
With Spring just around the corner, it's that time of year when you can make a difference to your town and join in the Big Boston Clean Up 2019.
Get together for the 12th annual big clean up, lasting four days, from Monday, April 15, to Thursday, April 18. You can join us for the whole four days, one day or even just half a day - whatever you can do would be a great help.
As well as cleaning up the town it's a chance to have some fun with a friendly group of people. Free lunch is available and there will be various tea and biscuit breaks throughout the day. This year's big clean up is paying particular attention to the plastic litter and importance of helping to minimise plastic pollution.
Last year nearly 400 people took part, approximately 100 people a day. Everybody is welcome, anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult, meeting at the Municipal Buildings at 9am each day.

Primary Schools will once again taking part in their version of the big clean up - the Big Schools Clean Up, the week before the Easter break. Last year almost 500 children took part.
Jen said: "This year will be the 12th annual Big Boston Clean Up. Hundreds and hundreds of volunteers have supported the campaign since 2008.
"It does have a significant impact on the appearance of the town, raises awareness of the issues of littering and other environmental crime and proves that by working together we can make a positive difference.
"There is a great atmosphere and community spirit giving volunteers the opportunity to meet lots of new people and you are more than welcome to join with us for a free lunch, kindly sponsored by local companies including Freshtime, Asda and Co-Op, with a special treat for all the children taking part. Come and join in... it really is a good day out."
