Cleethorpes Together to preserve coastline gem for future generations
WE love Cleethorpes – show us that you do, too!
Whether you're a resident, run a business in the resort, walk your dog along the seafront, or simply want to help preserve this coastline gem for future generations, then get stuck in!
A brand new drive – Improving Cleethorpes Together – to spruce up the award-winning town is being put together by the Cleethorpes South Forward resident group and backed by the Grimsby Telegraph.
And not only will the hard work being done by locals, businesses and community groups benefit the town and make it one of which to be even more proud, those who go the extra mile will get their own special recognition.

So if you have seen someone helping to improve the area you live in – anything from litter picking to flower potting, decorating to dog-poop scooping – get ready to nominate them.
The chairman of Cleethorpes South Forward group, Keith Brown, said: "We are very excited.
"It has taken about 18 months of ground work, but we know it will be worth it.
"This is all about improving Cleethorpes for the future. We have got to secure it for our younger generations."
The campaign will run throughout the year and nomination forms will be printed in the Grimsby Telegraph's recently-launched Cleethorpes and Villages daily paper.
Nominees will be judged by a panel of local people and the winners will be given a funky window sticker to show their neighbours they are doing their bit to help improve Cleethorpes – and it is hoped this will spur people on to do the same.
Neighbourhood Development Area Coordinator for North East Lincolnshire Council, John Manton, said: "This is about creating a club that people want to be part of and proud of.
"They know they will be recognised for their good work.
"It is a really positive thing for Cleethorpes."
Mr Brown added: "We are hoping it will spiral and carry on. We need something like this to get people into gear. We have got the environment to think about, there are houses that need tidying up. The place is looking a little dowdy at the minute and something needs to be done.
"If people are seeing that places are being done up, they will do the same."
