Skegness – This fashionable and favourite watering-plce was, we are informed, never more extensively patrinised than it has been during the present season.
Not only the hotels but the private lodging houses are well filled.
The juvenile members of the family of the Duke of Manchester recently arrived at Mrs Hildred’s Hotel, where they are still remaining.
