A PARTY political conference opened by the Mayor of Skegness will take place in the town this Spring.

The UK Independence Party’s Spring Conference takes place at the Embassy Theatre on Saturday, March 3.

Mayor of Skegness Coun Steve Kirk asked his fellow councillors whether they thought it would contradict his non-political role if he accepted the invitation to open the conference. Councillors at the meeting on Wednesday felt he should accept the invitation as the ‘face of the town’.
