Note: I’m advised that this ‘set piece’ was most likely to have been an illumination featuring an animated Skegness Jolly Fisherman.
Thanks to Michelle Brown, Cheryl Sumner Heath, and Karen Hall for their help with this article.
The large Jolly Fisherman set piece near the boating lake behind Compass Gardens is to be repaired rather than replaced.
Badly damaged during the recent gales, it will be placed on the edge of the putting green next to the model village once it has been reconstructed.
