Mr Jolly Fisherman, meet, errh ‘Mr Jolly Fisherman’
Our Jolly came face to face with HIMSELF, as he helped unveil a special model in the Hildred’s Shopping Centre in Skegness this morning.
The Jolly Fisheman Model, which was made by Hildred’s Assistant manager, Steve Andrews, was revealled to the public by the Mayor and Mayor of Skegness, Coun Neil Pimperton and Coun Rita Pimperton, helped by the real Skegness Jolly Fisherman.
The model has been made as part of the Jolly Fisherman 100th Birthday celebrations and will be on display in the Hildred’s Centre until Jolly’s official birthday party on the 27th July, 2008, when it will be auctioned off in aid of the Mayor’s charity, the Fire Service National Benevolent Fund.
A post box will be placed alongside of the Jolly Fisherman model, and children will be invited to post birthday cards to Jolly on his special birthday. There will be a prize for the winner.
