A car dealership located on the outskirts of Boston has kindly agreed to donate an electric car to assist with this year’s judging campaign for Boston in Bloom.

Listers BMW offered the support and donation of a BMW i3, to the partnership to drive the judges around the route for 2019.

Boston in Bloom partnership Chairman, Alison Fairman said: “We’re very grateful to Listers BMW for their kind donation of a i3 for the duration of the judging day, enabling us to encourage environmental friendliness with zero emissions.”

Marketing Manager for Listers BMW, Alex Matthews, said: “Boston in Bloom is a prominent partnership in Boston and it’s a huge pleasure to be able to provide a zero emission i3 for their judging panel, especially considering the fantastic work it does in improving the appearance of the town.”

This year, Boston in Bloom encompasses the Market Place, Pescod Square, Central Park, Willoughby Road Allotments and more, with the 2019 education partner yet to be announced.

Boston in Bloom is a group of hard-working volunteers, donating time and expertise to improve the appearance of the town centre. It has provided revitalisation of areas, by regeneration and installation of new, attractive features including artworks, working with various artists and funding sources, alongside working in partnership with Boston Borough Council, enabling the town to be brightened by planters, floral arrangements and much more.

Thanks to the efforts of the Boston in Bloom volunteers, Boston recorded its fourth in-bloom gold medal last year, and will be aiming for a fifth in 2019.

Volunteers and sponsorship are being sought by the partnership, and if you’d like to support it, you can make contact via Facebook (www.fb.com/bostoninbloom) or on the website, www.bostoninbloom.co.uk
