I WOULD like to give a special thanks to the Princess Royal for visiting Boston on December 12.
It was delightful to be with her to open a unique building in our town. Boston Mayflower and Boston Citizens Advice Bureau made a decision some time ago to join forces to support the people of Boston in offering housing and advice not just to Boston Mayflower tenants, but all people that live in Boston.
The Princess Royal officially opened Chantry House which is being watched assomething that the rest of the country could benefit from emulating.
She also asked about last week's floods. She said she was so sorry to hear that so many people had been affected but she was impressed by the way our local community had come together to support each other.
I feel this royal visit illustrates the affection that members of our royal family have for our town and its services and organisations.
Cllr Paul Kenny Mayor of Boston
