WILDLIFE havens was the theme for the latest Alchemy Project photo-walk.

Ten walkers aged from nine to more than 70 took part in the walk, led by Boston-based social artist Katie Smith, along a route that had been planned by group member John Shaw.

The walkers, armed with their cameras, set off from Central Park then made their way to Boston's woodland cemetery, where they explored its impressive Victorian memorials, chapel and gatehouse before taking in the picturesque sights of Horncastle Road.

Katie said: "We were very lucky to spot a muntjac deer in the cemetery and John was very good at identifying trees for us.

"The group has really gelled and we all ended up in the warmth of Greggs for lashings of hot chocolate and chat."

Katie said the group is starting to come up with its own suggestions for extra photography sessions together, including the town's Christmas market and the bubble car parade.

The next photo-walk is on Saturday, November 24. It will be led by Katie and Haven High Academy student Patryk Majewski, who moved to Boston from Poland with his family seven years ago and is a keen nature photographer.

His route will explore the Frampton Marsh coastal wetland nature reserve and walkers should meet in the car park there at 2pm. The free walk will last around 90 minutes.

Details will be posted on The Alchemy Project website www.alchemyproject.eu or call JUST Lincolnshire on 01522 836161.

The walks are the latest in a series of events organised by The Alchemy Project, which has been set up to help break down the barriers between the different communities living in Boston.
