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.

Warm Spaces

Providing spaces with respect, dignity and warmth

With significant increases in living costs there is unprecedented pressure on people already in poverty, and this winter despite the support given by Government, people in South and East Lincolnshire will be forced to make tough decisions about when and what they eat, what they can do in life, and when they can afford to heat their home.

To support our residents we have worked with our partners to create a network of Warm Spaces, a group of places where local residents can come together to stay warm and perhaps enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit.

We have created a directory of all the places available to our residents so that anyone who is cold knows where they can go to get warm, stay warm and enjoy a little company and some hot refreshments.

Warm Spaces Charter

All members of the Warm Spaces network across Boston Borough work to these standards.

You'll get a warm welcome as well as Warm Space

Every time you come to a Warm Space you'll be given a warm welcome from the staff and volunteers there.

Everyone is treated equally

Everyone has the right to be warm. Everyone in a Warm Space will be treated with dignity and respect.

Your Warm space will be a safe space

The groups own safeguarding policies will always be followed. Where refreshments are offered, food hygiene rules are followed too. Each venue will follow the latest public health guidance around Covid-19, flu and other illnesses. Venues will follow their own age restrictions as appropriate and clearly display them on Locate and within the venue.

We'll not tell anyone about you needing a Warm Space

If you want to share the reasons you need a Warm Space, someone will listen, but they won't tell anyone else unless you give them permission, or they must because of their safeguarding policies.

It doesn't matter why you need a Warm Space

Every Warm Space is a non-judgemental space; whatever the reason you have for needing to come in, you'll be treated the same and never judged.

Warm Space participants will be expected to adhere to their own safeguarding policies and ensure that all staff and volunteers are briefed on these procedures.

Sharing Warm Spaces for Boston Borough Council

If you've got a Warm Space already, please tell us about your facilities and services by emailing the Empowering Healthy Communities Co-ordinator

There is also a national Warm Welcome database where you can find a space or register your space.
