Boston Buoys trail Launch
July saw the official launch of the Boston Buoys trail, six stunning art installations which celebrate Boston's rich heritage and maritime connections.
Three artists Jo Chapman, Carrie Reichardt, and Bex Simon worked on two buoys each, designing sculptures with cradles of steel seaweed, mosaic mermaids, and forged metal flowers, respectively.
The launch event on Saturday celebrated the art trail and was a great day for all the family, with a range of entertainment and activities inspired by the artwork also taking place; Boston's very own real mermaid was even in attendance!

Boston Buoys has been lead by Transported, in partnership with Boston Borough Council, Boston Big Local, Boston in Bloom and the Environment Agency Boston Barrier Scheme.
Saturday was also the unveiling of the 'Horizon' sculpture at Scotia Creek. The sculpture features a metal viewing platform that allows visitors to look out to the Wash and beyond, at an important spot in the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims and their voyage to New England in the 1600s.
