We Will Remember Them - Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday may be very different this year due to Covid-19, but in no way will it be less honoured.

The Mayor, Cllr Dannatt and other community representatives attended a small service and wreath laying at St Matthew's Church to mark this day on behalf of all Skegness & Winthorpe residents.

A recording of this service will be available on Skegness Town Council's YouTube channel from 10.48am to coincide with the 2 minutes silence at 11am. More »

We hope that you all continue to stay safe during this time of remembrance. » Less
