Great turnout for Boston's Family Fun Friday

On a brisk April morning visitors turned out in numbers to enjoy stalls for the Boston Rowing Club, Boston & District Motorcycles, Boston in Bloom, Transported and many more.

Sophie Gaish, from Boston, heard about the event on Facebook. She said "There are lots of really good activities for the kids to do".  Activities included making clay fishes at the Transported stall, as part of the 'From the Station to the Stump Project ', colouring in exercises at the Rivers and Canals Trust stall and aiming for fishes with magnetic fishing rods.

Speaking to Shirley Rogers, a volunteer with the Rivers & Canals Trust, about the Boston Family Fun Friday, she said she was "very grateful to the other stall organisers for coming along to sponsor the event and help raise public awareness of the many activities available". She also said it was a "win win situation for everyone involved with the event nearly doubling in size since last year".

Phil Latka of Boston Rowing Club said they had received a lot of interest from the public, with young children having a go on the rowing machine. There were prospective member enquiries and offers of volunteer help with forthcoming events.
