Boston May Fair

Boston Borough Council and the Showman's Guild are pleased to announce that for the first time on Sunday 5th May 11am-1pm the May Fair on Bargate Green Car park and Wide Bargate will be opening without sound. This will enable families with children with additional needs to enjoy the delights of the May Fair without the sensory overload that can sometimes prevent some of them enjoying the experience.

Boston Borough Council calls for residents to nominate their Boston Heroes

Posted on 12 February 2024

Following the success of the last two year's Boston Heroes Campaign Boston Borough Council is calling on the community to nominate their local heroes for 2023/24. 

The awards are designed to shine a light on the people, groups and organisations who go above and beyond to help others and to honour persons who are making significant contributions to their community through their time, actions, talents and dedication (outside any volunteer work done for their employer) across the Boston Borough area.

The award categories are as follows: 

Boston Heroes 2023/2024
  • Outstanding Achievement
  • Group Champion
  • Individual Champion
  • Youth Champion.

Councillor Emma Cresswell, Portfolio Holder for Communities and People said: "I have always been amazed by the number of nominations and the support this campaign has received in the past, so without a doubt it is definitely something that we needed to continue with.

"This campaign was created to inspire positivity across our diverse and vibrant community. We have seen over the years a flood of support for Boston and we've witnessed the pride that so many Bostonians feel for their community.

"At the heart of this campaign we want to give the people of Boston the opportunity to shine a light on their unsung heroes who have created a lasting-impact on Boston - from the smallest acts of kindness, to life-changing support."

"I would like to encourage as many people as possible to get involved. Individuals, groups or organisations, working together and looking out for each other are what make our community special and these awards are all about celebrating the very best of that."

Nominating your Boston Heroes couldn't be simpler. We have set up a dedicated page on our website, where those in the community can easily nominate their hero and explain why they deserve to win. Please get nominating your heroes now at

The deadline for nominations is midnight on Sunday 10th March 2024, and winners will be announced shortly after
