The Jolly Fisherman symbol is the official trademark of Skegness Town Council and this statue stands in a prominent position on the sea front. The symbol originated on a railway poster drawn by John Hassall for the Northern Railway Company in 1908. Visitors to Skegness are not welcome in the coronavirus pandemic and businesses are all closed, as are car parks and toilets. The message is you are welcome but not now. Come later.
