Chapel welcome sign planned

Share this article

RESIDENTS of Chapel St Leonards have been asked to put their thinking caps on after the launch of a new competition to design a new road sign welcoming visitors to the town.

The Chapel neighbourhood management residents’ forum hopes to erect a sign at the entrance to the village off the A52 at the Trunch Lane and Skegness road.

And it has called on residents to suggest what they would like in the sign.

Rick Coates, a neighbourhood project officer with East Lindsey District Council said: “It has been decided to launch a competition for the design of a suitable sign that might reflect the heritage, history and culture of Chapel St Leonards.

“It’s a chance for residents to create their own sign which they feel reflects the local community, and which lets visitors know what residents think of Chapel St Leonards.

“It will also be nice to have a welcome sign at the entrance to Chapel rather than than just a simple white name sign.”

The competition is open to all residents of Chapel St Leonards, whatever their age.

The winning design will recieve a £30 voucher.

Entries must be received on an A4 sheet of paper by no later than Friday, July 8.

They should be sent to Rick Coates, Neighbourhood Projects Officer, Ingoldmells Parish Council Offices, Skegness Road, Ingoldmells, Skegness, PE25 1NL. Alternatively email to

For further information call 01754 875 336.

All of the entries will be judged by an independent panel and the winner will be announced by July 21st.
