New park website details restoration plans

New life: A historic Lincoln park has its own website, and features details on a potential restoration project.

A website has been set up for Boultham Park by a local charity, hoping to restore the historic nature spot.

The website is managed by Linkage Community Trust, and allows people to share their memories of their time in the park.

The site also details the history of the park, and St Helen’s Church, and podcasts.

Linkage Community Trust has also submitted a partnership bid alongside the City of Lincoln Council to receive enough funding from Heritage Lottery funding to restore the park.

The restoration project includes transforming the stable block and coaching house into an education centre, and the erection of a greenhouse, cafe and shop.

Of course, restoration plans can be found in detail on the new website.

Linkage Community Trust’s director of Business Development, Jane Howson, says: “We have launched the website to use modern technology to celebrate the historic legacy of a park which dates back to the 1830s.

“As part of our Lottery bid, we invested a lot of time into researching the Park and thank people who have helped us. We’d love to hear more memories so please visit the website.”

An outcome for the funding bid is expected in the summer.

Last year, the charity passed stage one of a grant application for £2.7 million in funding for natural restoration, and the play area was revamped by the City Council.
