A scheme to establish a Peace Memorial in the Compass Gardens on Skegness seafront to remember those who died in war has been given a boost by Skegness Conservative Branch.

Through an auction conducted by Sid Dennis at the branch’s annual ball at the Vine Hotel, a sum of £700 was raised for 
the memorial, planned 
by the Skegness Branch 
of the Royal British Legion.

The money was handed over at a Conservative coffee morning held at Steak ‘N’ Stuff Restaurant on Castleton Boulevard, Skegness, attended by the Conservative Parliamentary candidate for Boston and Skegness Matt Warman.

The presentation was made by Michelle Martin, the branch’s deputy chairman (membership and fundraising), to Royal British Legion branch chairman Les Constantine and its president Jim Moran.
