At 12pm on Tuesday 17th June, Boston’s Mayor, Councillor Alison Austin officially reopened Boston Grammar School’s Library. After six months the school’s traditional heart is restored and back in use following the tidal surge and resulting flood in December 2013.
In attendance were Phillip Bosworth (Chair of Governors), Brian Pycock (Chair of the Foundation Governors), Jim Howes (ex-Chair of Governors), Mick Todd (Governor), Peter Sharman (Old Bostonian Association), pupils and members of staff.
Mrs Ellis and her tutor group were pleased to welcome the guests to the celebration and ceremony. The school is very grateful to all those who have supported it throughout this time. It is reassuring to be reminded of the school’s character and resilience.
Peter Sharman said: “I attending the Library re-opening yesterday – it looks better now than before the flood!”
