In their latest report, the Boston Hanse Group has shared an update on how their latest activities are introducing the people of Boston to the town’s history and promoting the benefits of a wider partnership with other towns, cities and countries.
At Heritage Days on 8 and 9 September the group met over 200 visitors at Fydell House, giving out many of the free Boston Hanse leaflets and selling local history books.
The Sessions House Open Days on 15 and 16 September were a great success with more than 300 people touring the building in groups of up to 30. Alison Fairman gave each group a brief introduction to the old and new Hanse and, with the Youth Hanse students in costume and the spinners demonstrating and displaying Lincoln Longwool, there was plenty to interest visitors.
Publicising Boston Hanse
The new, free Hanse leaflet, has gone down really well with local people and visitors to Boston. Hundreds of copies have been given out at the Stump, at the Sessions House open day and at the Heritage weekend.
Boston Big Local is providing £5,000 of support over two years to the Boston Hanse Group as part of Theme 4: Encouraging Enterprise of the Boston Big Local Plan, which runs from April 2017 to March 2019.
