Take a picture of Skegness and send it to us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter!

Skegness Town Council has launched a fun campaign to invite local residents to take photos illustrating what Skegness means to them. Called MySkegness, the campaign aims to find out what people think of the town – what they love and what needs improving.

The campaign is part of a consultation exercise in preparation for writing a Neighbourhood Plan for Skegness. A Neighbourhood Plan sets out planning policies for the future and is a powerful tool to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place.

Cllrs Dick Edginton and Sue Blackburn who are leading this for the Council say:

"We would like to know your views - what Skegness means to you, what you love about it and what you don't. What are your favourite bits and which are the areas you would like to see a change? Take a picture, post it on Instagram, Twitter or the My Skegness Chat Group on Facebook, add the hashtag #myskegness and we'll repost it. The best will feature in an exhibition!"

So, get those cameras out and get snapping! Take a photo of what Skegness means to you – the good bits and the bad – and post it on Instagram, Twitter or the My Skegness Chat Group on Facebook. Add the hashtag #myskegness and the Council will pick it up and repost it.

There will be competitions coming very soon including:

  • Photo of the week
  • Photo of the month
  • Groups and societies photo of the month
  • Best photo by a child under the age of 10
  • Best photo by a young person under the age of 15

The chosen photos will feature in an exhibition to be put on by the Council at a future date.
