The Sunshine play area, in Skegness, was officially opened 10 years ago.

The former Sunshine paddling pool in Grand Parade was turned into a modern play area by Skegness Town Council.

To mark its official opening, the council invited pupils from all the local primary schools to meet then mayor, Coun Pat Phillips, and try out the new equipment.
