Jolly Fisherman Headboard Presented to Skegness Council

Skegness Council added to their collection of Jolly Fisherman memorabilia when ten—year—old James Dixon presented the old British Rail ‘Jolly Fisherman’ engine nameplate to Mayor Ken Holland.

The nameplate was bought at auction by Burgh businessman Toni Dixon who put in a bid on the Dennis McCarthy Afternoon Special radio show which was raising money for charity.

The plate spent some time in James’ bedroom as a collectors item and has now been given to Skegness with the hand over at a recent council meeting.
