THE Hildreds Shopping Centre in Skegness is set to throw itself into the Olympic spirit next week when the torch relay passes through the area.
The shopping centre has created a special picture board so that visitors to the centre can take their own photos on Wednesday, June 27 as a keep sake of this once in a lifetime event.
Centre deputy manager Steve Andrews said: “In the future when people ask you where were you when the Olympic torch came to Skegness you can proudly hold your photo high and say, I was there!.
“We will also be holding the “Hildreds Games” outside the front of the centre as I am making a giant 8ft square snakes and ladders game and a giant chequers game that people can have a go at for free.
“The Skegness Lions will be helping out with these so if you can see a bright yellow vest, a game will not be far away,” he added.
