However, having considered the suggestions received, councillors are hoping more residents will be inspired now the building is taking shape.

At Wednesday's meeting, Mr Larner suggested maybe the council might like to come up with some ideas.

However, Coun Billy Brookes commented: "As this is a community building, I think it is important the name should be one chosen by a resident."

The competition is open to all residents of Skegness and Winthorpe, regardless of age.

Outlining the details of the competition, deputy town clerk Kate Ford said "The council have considered the names put forward for the new Community Building in Tower Gardens but have decided to reopen the competition now that construction has started.

"It is hoped that as people can see the building taking shape this will inspire new ideas for the name and encourage more people to enter.

"Council want to arrive at a name that suits the building and its position in Tower Gardens."
