PUBLICANS and businesses have welcomed the surge in trade provided by weekend events at Butlins and the visitors they attract.

A soul weekend at the holiday resort last weekend attracted almost 5,000 visitors to the coast.

Many of the guests ventured out of the site to visit bars, restaurants and shops in Skegness.

The Red Lion reported a three fold rise in sales on Saturday due chiefly to the Butlins guests.
