It was great to read last week’s story about 104-year-old Sydney Pope, who has been visiting Skegness for 90 years.

It was great to read last week’s story about 104-year-old Sydney Pope, who has been visiting Skegness for 90 years.

What an ambassador for our great town!

Let’s get him signed up for a commercial or some promotional material, because I can only hope that if I make it to that grand age, I look as well as he does.

And if the resort’s bracing sea air has played any part, then why aren’t we bottling the stuff and flogging it!

On a serious note, it is brilliant to see that we still have much to offer and keep people like Syd coming back year after year.

And I feel there is plenty to be positive about in the future. Look at the progress being made at the old Panda’s Palace and you only have to look at Butlin’s and see the investment made there. And let’s hope there is even more to come for our great town.

All in all, I think Skegness has a great deal to be positive about. And hopefully we will see many more like Syd who keep coming back.
