New year began with many businesses recovering from the December storm 
surge.

Some seafront kiosks remained closed until Easter and Skegness Pier announced a full revamp to its damaged Laser Quest and bowling alleys.

l Natureland Seal Sanctuary was swamped with 14 seal rescues from 
over Christmas.

l On a brighter note, the birth of local boy, James Richardson, to parents Jess Bridges and Karl Richardson, meant five generations on both mother and father’s 
side.

l East Lindsey District Council gave the 
green light for 150 
homes to be built in Ingoldmells on land off Anchor Lane.

l The design for the new Beacon Primary Academy school was revealed.

It was set to provide more than 200 new places 
for children.

l Spilsby’s Buttons Day Care Nursery became 
record holders for the world’s longest paper 
doll chain.

l There was great news for Gunby Hall as the historic site - which can be found between Skegness and Spilsby - announced record breaking visitor numbers for the 
previous year.
