YOUNGSTERS hoping to learn about the region’s rich agricultural history at Church Farm Village are set to benefit from improved educational facilities thanks to a generous donation by Skegness Academy.

Principal Kelvin Hornsby has donated 15 desktop computers, an interactive whiteboard and a projector to the historic site to help the local community engage in learning activities and to develop knowledge that he feels could improve standards of education.

Mayor of Skegness and Church Farm Village committee member Coun Steve Kirk has welcomed the donation, which he hopes will further develop the museum’s existing ties with local schools.

He said: “Currently we get a lot of visitors from schools but the new set up will move what we can offer up another gear.

“It’s a fantastic offer - we are an organisation which relies on donations and volunteers so to get a donation such as this will save us thousands of pounds we would have otherwise had to raise ourselves.”

Local history groups will also be encouraged to use the impressive new facilties.
