Tributes paid to former Mayoress

TRIBUTES and a minute’s silence were paid to a two time Mayoress of Skegness who died recently.

Mayor of Skegness Coun Steve Kirk led his fellow councillors in showing their respects to Lillian Grunnell during a town council meeting on Wednesday.

Coun Kirk said: “She was a very good Mayoress and also a very good friend of the town - she will be sorely missed.”

Lilian was the wife of Frank Grunnell who served as Mayor of Skegness in 1990 and 2000 and also an Honoured Citizen.
