Memories of Meggies

News |

Cleethorpes landmarks, local pubs, shops and schools from times gone by will all feature as part of a free exhibition sharing memories of the resort at Cleethorpes Library on December 8.

Visitors will be able to browse artefacts relating to some of the town’s churches and chapels, including the parish church of St Peter and Trinity Methodist Church.

Maps, photographs and artefacts will also show the impact that both World Wars had on the town. The Zeppelin raid of 1916 and the First World War presentation tank, which was displayed in Thrunscoe Recreation Ground between 1920 and 1928 will both feature.


This exhibition is part of the ‘Streets and their Stories’ project. We hope it will give visitors an insight into some familiar, and not so familiar, aspects of the history of Cleethorpes. We're also looking to capture people’s memories and collect local images, so we're looking forward to meeting anyone who has an interesting story or photograph connected with the town.

The exhibition is free and takes place in the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library on December 8, 10am to 3pm.
