Images that make South Holland the area it is are about to be carried across Europe after a specially-commissioned project by Transported Arts.

A collection of ten portraits of the area and Boston was unveiled during an invitation-only ceremony at FreshLinc in Pinchbeck on Tuesday.

The portraits were designed by Warwickshire artist Alisha Miller (pictured next to her portrait of Cross Keys Swing Bridge, Sutton Bridge) on the theme of Lincolnshire Loveliness and each of them will be carried on Freshlinc trailers which cover about 125,000 miles a year across the UK and Europe.

Alisha said: “I’ve loved this project with a great big L and I’ve enjoyed doing the research, meeting really friendly people in Lincolnshire and taking all the information away to figure out what sort of stories I wanted to tell and what sort of visions I wanted to remember from my own personal experiences.”

Ashley Holland, commercial manager of FreshLinc, added: “We were approached by Transported just over a year ago and a competition was set up for artists to come up with a proposal for artwork to go on the sides of our lorries.

“Alisha’s proposal was the best and I believe her collection is a good representation of South Holland and Boston.”

Dennis Bell, chairman of Transported’s management group, said: “I think it’s great that this (collection) has evolved out of the project and is linked with the area where we live.

“FreshLinc has been so good to work with and I think it’s a fantastic example of what Transported is all about.”
