Mayor welcomes Princess Royal to Boston
I would like to give a special thanks to the Princess Royal for visiting Boston on Thursday, December 12.
It was delightful to be with her to open a unique building in our town. Boston Mayflower and Boston Citizens Advice Bureau made a decision some time ago to join forces to support the people of Boston in offering housing and advice not just to Boston Mayflower tenants, but all people that live in Boston.
The Princess Royal officially opened Chantry House which is being watched nationally for its innovative partnership working in supporting people to gain advice and support to make their lives more independent and be able to sustain their lives more effectively. She was impressed with what she saw and believes that we are doing something that the rest of the country could benefit from emulating.
She also asked about last week's floods. She said she was so sorry to hear that so many people had been affected but she was impressed by the way our local community had come together to support each other.
She went on to visit the Stump of which she is patron as she was concerned about the damage to it. I feel this royal visit illustrates the affection that members of our royal family have for our town and its services and organisations.
Cllr Paul Kenny
Mayor of Boston
