August 2021. Some of our streets are looking brighter today! The folks taking part in the community art project run by HATS had a most successful weekend painting some of the telecom boxes around town. Funded by West Lindsey Council and the Stop Loan Sharks organisation the scheme brought together other community groups and local residents. For more information and images go to the LEAP Community Art page in the Environment section. What a fantastic initiative and we think you will agree these paintings are stunning! We hope those taking part are feeling proud of themselves and didn’t get too wet in the rain. Well done!
