People in Holbeach can enjoy the comfort of a new commemorative bench celebrating the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.

The bench is situated on land outside Holbeach Community Centre in Fishpond Lane and is the idea of the town’s three district councillors, Francis Biggadike, Martin Howard and Rita Rudkin and has been paid for by grants from their designated budgets.

Coun Rudkin said: “It’s a very pretty part of Holbeach which belongs to the district council, but it’s very underused.

“We’ve also ordered two ornate litter bins to be put either side of the bench which is ideal for the elderly to use.”
