Boston Stump Gardens Family Fun Day:
St Botolph Church is better known as Boston Stump, it is famed for being the tallest Parish church in England (measured to it’s roof). The church is free to enter, and often has various displays about Boston such as the wool trade. There are great views from it’s tower (these are not free on Celebrate the fens weekend), which is a must is you’re visiting the area. The church is very involved with the community, and has started up a community garden, which will be open to all.
Join us for a family fun day, with nature crafts, bird feeder making, and seed planting to take home. All ages are welcome to come along and see our wonderful town centre haven of peace – or you can just come along and enjoy a contemplative hour in the garden.
