Supporting Albie's Fund
Albie’s fund is a local family in the village of Fleckney that are trying to raise the shortfall after government grants for their family home adaption. After a traumatic birth being born at 37 weeks by C-section, doctors noticed things were not quite right. After 3 hours of being born Albie started having seizures and after lots of tests the results came back that Albie had the following: Arthrogryposis; epilepsy; a left eye squint and other medical issues. Along with all this, Albie‘s mum was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer, dad had just started a new job and couldn’t get time off work and he now has to work endlessly to make ends meet. Albie also has an older brother called Charlie that also needed caring for during this hard time. Albie is unable to sit, talk, crawl, walk or self-feed. Therefore money raised is towards adaptions to their bungalow to make life easier for the family. APCR is showing it’s support to this local family by donating the profits from this trip to the fund. We wish Albie and all his family the very best.
Skegness and its roots
A little piece of history - it is known that Skegness has been occupied since before Roman times. Roman pottery can be found today on the shore, it makes a change from collecting sea shells!
Salt was manufactured along much of the low lying coast of Lincolnshire in Roman times and evidence of their working sites and even artifacts bearing their fingerprints can still be found today.
Visiting Skegness on the Lincolnshire Seaside became ever more popular over the years though at first only the better off people were able to take advantage of the facilities provided in Skegness. In the 1870's the Earl of Scarborough, landowner of Skegness at that time, decided to improve the town and with estate agent V.Tippet plans were drawn up for new streets and houses which extended to what is now Scarborough Avenue.
