WE ARE staging special exhibitions to celebrate our Devolved Budgets scheme, which last year provided £140,000 of improvements within Boston and its surrounding villages.
Our two exhibition sessions at Age UK’s Community Room in Boston’s Strait Bargate take place on Wednesday, 23rd April, and Thursday, 24th April - running from 10am-4pm each day.
Customer Participation Manager Diane Johnson said: “The catchphrase for our Devolved Budget scheme is ‘You Said, We Did’, which really sums up its ethos.
“We ask our tenants what they would like changed in their area, then every penny of the Devolved Budgets money is spent on incorporating these improvements into these neighbourhoods.
“These exhibitions will give the people of Boston and surrounding villages the chance to see how we are trying to improve local communities, and the work we have completed.
“We will also use the sessions to listen to their views and suggestions for future improvements in our areas.”
Both sessions will feature refreshments, with Wednesday’s exhibition focusing on our tenants and the wider community and Thursday’s on partner organisations and local people.
Boston Borough Councillors will be in attendance and representatives from Lincolnshire County Council’s Highways Department have also been invited.
During the exhibitions there will also be the chance for visitors to find out more about available properties, financial advice from the Fit 4 Your Future team, and services offered by our Lifeline telecare facility.
