Northern Gas Networks (NGN) has donated £1,000 to keep Boston Spa blooming.

NGN are carrying out vital maintenance work in the village by replacing old metal pipes with more durable plastic ones.

The work started on Monday 10 July on Spa Lane and is expected to last around 32 weeks with 3km of pipes being replaced as part of the £475,000 project.

The scheme is registered as a Considerate Constructor Scheme site, and as part of the scheme’s pledges, NGN’s Customer Care Team visit local schools and charities to explore ways of making a difference to the lives of people living where there is gas work.

Jeff Newton, Chairman of Boston Spa In Bloom, said: “We are very pleased to receive a donation from NGN and whilst we are not looking forward to the works in the village it will be good to have the gas supply network upgraded for the long term. In addition the donation will enable us to improve the appearance of the centre of the village in the shorter term.”
