Support Our Projects
Here at Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service, we run a number of environmental projects working with Boston Big Local. All our environmental projects cover the Boston area and are managed by our Environmental Projects Co-ordinator, Jackie Lane.
Naturehood encourages people to get involved in improving the Boston area’s wildlife habitats – developing a number of naturehood sites across Boston. We work very closely with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust to develop public areas including Central Park, Pilgrims Patch, The Centenary Methodist Church, Scott House, the community garden behind St. Boltoph’s Church and the Geoff Moulder Community Garden.
We also help organise monthly events at a Friendly Bench outside Ancaster Court, in Broadfield Lane, Boston. This provides a friendly space where everyone is welcome and helps bring the community together.
We organise regular litter picks including along the River Witham and the tidal Haven and everyone is welcome to come along and get involved.
Our main funders are Boston Big Local, but we have been delighted to receive grants from BTAC, Asda Foundation and Shine Lincolnshire. We also receive donations of pallets from South Lincs Pallets which we use to make our bug hotels, and the Boston Men’s Shed have been making us bird, bug and bat box kits and roofs for our bug hotels.
We couldn’t deliver our projects without the support from so many local organisations including: Lincolnshire Wildlife, RSPB Frampton Marsh, Boston Borough Council, Transported, Boston Rowing Club, RiverCare/Keep Britain Tidy and Boston in Bloom.
