Portuguese get voice in Boston

The Boston Standard hopes to integrate two communities by introducing a Portuguese section to its weekly paper in Lincolnshire.

month the paper will dedicate several pages of news to the town’s
growing Portuguese community. About 5,000 of Boston’s 58,000
inhabitants are from Portugal.

Coverage, which will be written in
English and Portuguese, will include profiles on leading Portuguese
figures, Portuguese recipes and columns by the Anglo-Portuguese Society.

Julia Ogden said: “The most important job of a local newspaper is to
serve its community and there were 5,000 people living in the area who
felt ignored.

“Hopefully these pages will give them a reason to
buy the Boston Standart and help to bridge the gap between the
Portuguese community and Bostonians.”
