Hundreds of people gathered around the Clock Tower in Skegness to welcome in 2019
The tradition saw some people turn out in fancy dress in what was a mild winter’s evening.
Many revellers made a night of it and bars along the seafront were buzzing.
Earlier in the day, Facebook follower Andy Burrows shared his plans with us: “We are all walking up from mine around 11pm ish, pitstop at Wellies or Yates, then Clock Tower for midnight. Third year running now - amazing atmosphere!”
And the crowds were not disappointed as the Clock Tower struck midnight and the sky was filled with a stunning display of fireworks. Lee Crawford said: “Great fireworks, as always, tonight.”
Others wished they had been there. Elaine Turner was among the crowd last year and said: “It is great so many people and no trouble, we won’t be there tonight, but we will be in spirit. Happy New Year.”
Keith Cooper commented: “Nice to see that everyone still keeps going to the Clock Tower and enjoying themselves. I’ve spent many times there over the years - either for the new year or the World Cup semi-finals. Keep it going guys.”
