On Wednesday 1st March, Project Manager and Community Development Worker, Claire and Caroline, along with Chair of the Boultham Park Advisory Group, John, project volunteer, Lindsay, and the City of Lincoln Council’s Community Contracts Officer, Lee, went to Wigan to visit the workshops of Lost Art, the company tasked with the restoration of the park’s bandstand.

Everyone agreed it was really interesting to see all the different skills on display by their craftsmen and very heartening to see how much passion they have for the restorations that they carry out. Many thanks to Dominic Liptrop and Daniel Lee, and their team, for making time to show us around and explain the different aspects of their work.

Here are some photos of their workshops – can you spot the various bits of our bandstand, old and new?!
