Alive and Kicking, a leisure club for people with learning difficulties in Lincolnshire, celebrated its 15th birtday at a party attended by Skegness Mayor George Saxon.

Coun Saxon helped Alive and Kicking founder Tina Mellors cut the cake during the birthday bash at the Royal Hotel.

Alive and Kicking was started in Skegness in 1999 by Tina and Barry Mellors because as foster carers of people with learning disabilities, they realised there was nothing for them to do in the area to meet other people, make friends and have fun.

The group meets twice a week and has an exciting programme of events planed, including trips to restaurants, cinema nights, ten-pin bowling and much more. Tina said: “We now cater for 40 members, it is important for the members to socialize with members of the community we are always looking for volunteers.”
