In honor of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee a town in England will be granted city status and my beloved Boston, Lincolnshire has applied for consideration.
For years, the City of Boston in America has celebrated the story of how a group of individuals from Boston, Lincolnshire founded the Massachusetts Bay Company and established a new Boston. Unfortunately, this story is less well-known and less celebrated in the United Kingdom. After nearly 400 years, it is time that parity be established between the two Bostons by granting City status to Boston, Lincolnshire. After all, the City of Boston in America embraces Boston, England as its MOTHER CITY—not its mother town.
Although the 400th Anniversary of Boston, Massachusetts is nearly seven years away, granting Boston, Lincolnshire City Status will elevate it on both sides of the Atlantic and establish parity between these two great cities.
