Funding success for Mablethorpe Boat Shed restoration
November 7, 2019
Mablethorpe Boat Shed is set to undergo a number of major works after we successfully secured funding for the project through Ørsted's East Coast Community Fund.
We have secured £17,986 towards the £23,984 renovation project, which will see a number of improvements and crucial repairs made.
Development work includes new windows, extensive brickwork repair, a new boiler system and decoration throughout, which will be undertaken to bring the building back into use to benefit the community once again.
Once the works have been completed, the Boat Shed will become a community hub; serving as a meeting space for local groups and hosting a range of training and leisure facilities.
A new Men's Shed will be established at the Boat Shed, providing local men of all ages with a place learn new skills, relax and form new friendships.
Assistant Director for Property, Business and Growth, Neil Cucksey, said: "We're delighted to have secured this funding to ensure improvements to the Boat Shed. By undertaking these works we're safeguarding the future of the Boat Shed and ensuring that it will benefit the people of Mablethorpe for years to come.
"There has been a lot of local support for this project and we want to repay that by helping to establish the Boat Shed as a real asset for the community. I'd also like to pass on our thanks to Ørsted's East Coast Community Fund for agreeing to help fund the project."
