Calls to tidy up Skegness floral baskets

Unsightly flower pots
Unsightly flower pots

UNSIGHTLY features in Skegness have been accused of being off-putting to visitors and residents alike.

Complaints about dirty water features on the Foreshore have been posted on the Standard’s Facebook page and readers have also criticised the state of many floral baskets throughout the town. East Lindsey District Council, which maintains the water features, has improved the waterfall and will look at the other waterways next year, as it is too expensive to maintain every year,

Skegness Town Council has also decided not to enter the ‘East Midlands In Bloom’ competition as the state of the grass verges on Castleton Boulevard was considered to be too unkempt and irretrievable in time for the competition.
