Message from The Mayor of Skegness

As we have seen in recent days and weeks from the news about the Coronavirus, we are likely to see the daily lives of all of us change in a way that most of us have never experienced or expected. Coronavirus will affect us all in some way. For some the changes and consequences will be heavier than for others. Now is a time to work together and to support each other and be considerate to all the people in Skegness.

We have an older and therefore more vulnerable population in Skegness. Older people are being asked to isolate themselves to avoid catching the virus. Many do not have the family and friends to help them through this period. Neighbours are going to be really important to help keep them safe and ensure they can get the supplies and medicines they need. I am asking you all to be good neighbours. Be kind, be thoughtful, be generous. Check your neighbours are OK and perhaps give them your telephone number if they need assistance, or just a chat.

Businesses are going to struggle. Those that rely on the hospitality industry are going to face tough times and I know many residents are employed by these businesses and face uncertainty. I urge these businesses to work together to see how you can maximise the access to Government support packages for businesses. Consider how you might support one another to ensure that business is ready to bounce back when the crisis is over. If your business can afford it, make sure you pay your bills early and, if possible, give struggling businesses a bit longer to pay you. It might just help them survive.

I know many of you are worried about your finances, looking after your family and even simple things like being able to buy basic supplies. Skegness Town Council will have information on its websites that will point you to the places where you can get help. To everyone I urge you not to hoard food and supplies. If everyone just takes what they would normally use, there will be plenty to go around.

Skegness is a resilient community and it will survive this crisis. We should all follow Government advice, even if we or our friends are sometimes sceptical. We should listen to the official news and advice from reliable sources and not be basing our actions on what we hear on social media.

Finally, stay safe and Skegness Town Council will work to the best of its ability to help keep you informed.

Councillor Mark Dannatt – Mayor of Skegness
