    A very interesting read. I lived in Skegness on Scarborough Avenue between 1961-1970. I have recently given a series of talks about Skegness to local history society groups in South Derbyshire where I now live. This new magazine is great and has helped me to build up ,my knowledge of the older history of skegness.

  2. Lol! I HAVE got a shed load of old newspapers, but I just do it for interest, really. Got a lot of spare time lol! I’m not a journalist, but a local historian, and a pharmacy technician by trade.

  3. 19/03.1909 My Grandad’s brother, George Clark. My family owned that same house on Cecil ave right up until it got to large for my mother in 1995. There is a story about my mother, Sylvia Jeffries in May 1959, about the robbery at Scott.s Jeweller’s .
