A call has been issued for support from the people of Skegness to save the town’s historic Victorian pavilion.

The group working to find a new lease of life for the Tower Gardens pavilion has been given a May deadline to present a viable business plan to East Lindsey District Council.

Save Tower Gardens Pavilion Skegness members hope to refurbish the 138 year-old building for use as a venue for local groups, clubs, and organisations .

Group chairman Paul Stone said: “It is now that we call upon the people of Skegness who wish to see this pavilion saved, and who care about the rich history and heritage of this town, to take action.”

He added: “Following our recent meeting with the district council we are formulating a plan to take this building forward.”

Expressions of interest from local groups and organisations wanting to use the venue are needed to support the business plan.

Wainfleet and Burgh county councillor Chris Pain is helping the group look at fundraisng options and the cost of refurbishing the building.
