Lincolnshire Road Victims Memorial
A Tragedy for All
Each year many people are killed or injured on the roads of Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North-East Lincolnshire.
This is often a tragedy for the victims, but also for their families, neighbours, workmates and friends; and a loss for our whole community. CTAL works with the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership and others to serve all those who are affected by Road Accidents and to promote the road safety message.
Work to be Done
The Memorial Site will be on the outskirts of Boston, on a site generously provided by the Boston Woods Trust. The site is accessible, but away from the noise and disturbance of road traffic. A all-weather path will lead to a simple memorial plaque, and a shelter for cool or wet weather. Seats amongst the trees will provide peaceful spaces. Wherever possible, all features will be produced from recycled materials.
A Place to Remember
CTAL are working with the Louise and Sarah Memorial Fund and LRSP to develop a county Memorial Site for Road Victims. This will be a tranquil and beautiful place with open views where families and friends can find space to remember and reflect. We hope that it will be possible for families to place a small memorial plaque with the name of an accident victim.
But we need...
...your help to bring the site to reality. A total of £40,000 is needed to develop the site, build paths, provide the memorial plaque, shelter and seats etc. We have already received some generous support, but the majority of funds still need to be raised. Please help if you are able. Please contact us if you are interested in making a donation, or organising a fundraising event. We hope to have the site complete by summer 2018 at the latest.
2. Work underway
Exciting News - Almost finished
Firm paths have now been laid and the land has been lightly ploughed to allow for the planting of lots of bulbs which will in time supplement the natural wildflowers. We are most grateful to Boston Woods Trust and North Sea Camp for help in getting this far. Spring should see the site mature. The monument stone is ready and work is going on to provide a shelter for those visiting in inclement weather. Signage to the site is also being prepared..
We hope to be fully open sometime in Spring 2018 (you can visit now !) But please help us to raise the final few thousand Pounds needed to get up and running.
