The announcement comes with the appointment of three new directors – chairman Paul Dixon and joint vice-chairmen Bob Walker, and the Mayor of Skegness, Coun Pete Barry.

Working in collaboration with Naomi Walton, the manager of the Village Church Farm, and her dedicated team of staff and volunteers, they have undertaken a mission to deliver a variety of exciting activities and events throughout the year.

At the heart of the museum is a Georgian/Victorian farmhouse, which is the oldest house in Skegness, showcasing a fascinating glimpse into life spanning over 300 years.
