Residents of Philip Grove and Charles Close were invited along to sing carols and enjoy mince pies and mulled wine.

Coun David Cargill led a service and the Skegness Ambassadors went along to offer support.

The event was organised by tenant representative Sharon Palmer. She said: “It was a fun night for the residents and the community of Skegness and we hope lots of people come along and put memories of their loved ones on the tree.”
