Skegness councillor nominated for community service award


A community spirited councillor has received an award nomination for organising a life skills group in Skegness.

Maggie Gray is one of the finalists at the Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service Recognition Awards, which are taking place later this month. Skegness Town Council member Maggie has been short-listed in the ‘small charity big achiever’ category. The nomination is for her work setting up the Skegness Live and Learn group which teaches basic clothes repair skills. Maggie initially funded the group with her councillor allowances before receiving grant support from East Lindsey District Council.

The group meets Mondays at the Highwayman pub, Lincoln Road from noon to 2pm. For more information call Maggie on 01754 760614.

The awards ceremony is taking place at the Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre, Boston on Friday, January 30.
