An ambitious project to give an underused site near the Pullover at Chapel St Leonards a new lease of life is set to be unveiled.

The official opening of the Chapel St Leonards Seaside Community Space will see a host of family-friendly fun planned, including street theatre, a Punch and Judy show, face-painting and balloon modelling.

I’m confident it will help attract new visitors

Coun Colin Davie, LCC executive member for economic development

Lincolnshire County Council has been working with contractor Coffey Construction Ltd to create a three-tiered amphitheatre looking out towards the sea, along with new surfacing and furniture.

The local community will be able to use the space for a variety of purposes, including outdoor performances and activities.

There is also a new Punch and Judy kiosk, complete with visitor information and fairground mirror.

Coun Colin Davie, executive member for economic development at county, said: “This event is a perfect opportunity for people to experience all this new facility has to offer. This is just one of a series of investments on the coast, and I’m confident it will help attract new visitors.”

Funding for the scheme included £72,700 from WREN. Blue Anchor Leisure Ltd donated boulders and paid for a boat feature. The opening event takes place on Monday, May 30, from 11.30am to 1pm.
