The Skegness Jolly Fisherman Trail

(John Hassall born this day 1860)

100 young Jolly Fisherman’s join in birthday celebrations

SKEGNESS’S Jolly Fisherman will launch a special trail around his resort on May 21, 2008, and 100 young Jolly Fisherman’s will join him to mark his 100th birthday.
100 pupils from Skegness Infant School, which is also celebrating its 100th birthday this year, will don their favourite blue jumper, wellies and red scarf, as Jolly takes them on a tour of Skegness’ most famous landmarks, including his own statue, which sits in Compass Gardens.  Compass Gardens is also home to a special plaque given to the Jolly Fisherman by the Infant School earlier this year and it will give students a chance to see it in situ.
After the launch event, residents and holidaymaker's will be able to take a bracing walks around the trail with a guide available free from the town’s tourist information centre, opposite the Embassy Theatre.
