Summer ball will boost funds for Lincoln park restoration project
A black-tie ball will be held next month to raise funds for the multi-million-pound restoration of a park in Lincoln.
The ball will be held on Friday 23rd June to support the Boultham Park Restoration Project.
The project includes plans for various improvements to the 50-acre park, including the installation of CCTV and lighting at its bowls club.
There are plans to create a new café and to redevelop a former stable to create an education centre.
County housebuilder Chestnut Homes is supporting the project and is organising the black-tie ball, which will take place in the lakeside grounds of Jocastas, off Moor Lane in Thorpe-on-the-Hill, Lincoln.
David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “When we heard about the restoration project, we thought it was a wonderful idea and we were keen to support it in any way we could.
“We hope to see as many people as possible at our black-tie ball so that we can raise vital funds to help preserve and improve Boultham Park.
“The park is a beautiful space which holds a special place in the hearts of many people in Lincoln, and its restoration will benefit the whole community.
“We’re looking forward to a wonderful evening next month, and I hope as many people as possible will join us to support this very deserving local cause.”
Guests at the ball will enjoy a glass of Pimms on arrival, followed by a three-course meal with entertainment.
The evening will also include a charity raffle and auction.
The Boultham Park Restoration Project received a £2.7m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Parks for People’ initiative last year.Back To News
