Transformation of Pilgrims' Patch

A team of dedicated volunteers have started work on Pilgrims' Patch to give it a makeover in line with views gathered during a consultation with the public.

Boston Greenscapers and volunteers over the past few weeks have been working in this area on John Adams Way, between the Salvation Army hall and the British Red Cross building every Tuesday from 1.30pm to 4.30pm. 

The Pilgrims' Patch Project is a partnership between the Greenscapers, Boston Borough Council, Lincolnshire County Council and the Salvation Army, funded by the People's Health Trust.

Based on feedback from residents, the design for Pilgrims' Patch will be informal, in a cottage and woodland style, including planters and an archway with plants that give year-round colour, are scented and attract wildlife.

A Victorian-themed garden, drawn out by the use of two wrought iron archways, Victorian-style planters/urns and using suitable plants favoured by Victorian gardeners, will complement the surrounding buildings and the history of the area.

The large grassed area adjacent to the road and the central pathway will be kept and the grassed and tree areas around the periphery will be the main focus of activity.

An information board - in the same style as the board on the opposite corner of High Street - will be installed outlining the history of the area and the project.
