Co-ordinated by Boston Greenscapers, 2016 saw the completion of ambitious plans to restore Pilgrims’ Patch to its former Victorian glory.
Completion of the project was tinged with sadness following the untimely death of Boston Greenscapers’ stalwart Rob Lauberts. As a tribute to Rob 2000 bluebells were planted by volunteers as a living memorial.
Attractive railings, litter bins and an information board have been introduced to complement the two magnificent wrought-iron Gothic arches manufactured by local company, Craftwork Engineering Limited. Extensive planting has also been undertaken in the borders, including bergenia.
Improvements have been funded by The People’s Health Trust, Boston Big Local and Boston Borough Council.
Hosted by the Salvation Army, the official opening took place on 1st May 2016, with the Mayor and Mayoress in attendance.
