Coun Edginton told the annual town meeting last Wednesday: “The past 12 months has been one of the most rewarding periods of my life.

“To be elected mayor of your home town, the place where you grew up, is a great honour and I wear the Chain of Office with pride.

“So far I have attended 104 engagements, some serious, even sombre, others fun and light-hearted. I wish to thank those organisations and individuals who invited me.

“Skegness is a vibrant town with a firm community spirit across all age groups.
