Emmerdale stars to light up this year's Boston Christmas Market celebrations
PREPARATIONS are moving ahead on plans for this year's Boston Christmas Market.
The event will take place on November 29 and December 1 with craft stalls, specialist food stalls and traditional market stalls available and is once again being organised by Boston BID with support from local business people.
This year's event will not feature a parade because of concerns raised by Boston's Safety Advisory Group (SAG) which would have required 30 to 40 stewards to marshal it this year.
But the lack of a parade won't dampen spirits and this year's lights will be turned on by Emmerdale stars Chris Chittell, who plays Eric Pollard, and Lesley Dunlop, who plays unlucky-in-love Brenda Walker.
Get hi lites or low lites and a cut & blowdry with Hannah or Daniel between 10th and 14th December for only £40.00 please contact the salon for more details, just let us know its with this voucher.

Boston BID have been given a signed copy of the script for the live episode of Emmerdale which was screened in October 2012, which together with a signed Emmerdale tea towel and signed posters will be auctioned by Graham Summerfield from Boston Auctions on November 23 with proceeds going to the Mayor of Boston, Paul Kenny's charities.
Live bidding will be available and local businesses are being invited to donate items which can also be auctioned for charities.
Mr Summerfield, said: "Our company is very happy to do this, we are a part of Boston and want to support the town.
"We will be doing the auction free of charge and the winning bidder of the script will have the opportunity for it to be presented to them on the 29th.
"We have live bidding here and it is broadcast over the internet so people can hear the auction at the same time.
"There should be a hell of a lot of interest in the script.
"If any local businesses wants to donate things we would be willing to auction those at the same time and do it for free as well for the mayor's charities. We would like to get local businesses donating - the more the better because then we will draw in a bigger crowd."
Also for this year, a Vintage Fair will add colour to the event, setting up on the car park outside B&M off West Street.
Mr Ellis said: "There will be traditional stalls such as coconut shies etc and it should look very nice and a real family event. The prices will reflect that as well."
