Funding appeal for granite globe at Cleethorpes' Meridian Line
A FUNDRAISING effort has been launched to mount a £3,000 granite globe at Cleethorpes' Meridian Line.
Cleethorpes Renaissance Town Team is appealing to each Cleethorpes ward and local businesses to contribute £300 to the monument.
And Councillor Keith Brookes and Margaret Cracknell (Cons, Haverstoe) are among the first to help out.
As reported, the globe, weighing a tonne and measuring a metre wide, will mark the Meridian Line through Cleethorpes – the only UK seaside town it passes through.

Town Team's Peter Kingsford said: "Like everyone, we have very little money, but this is to enhance the whole of Cleethorpes.
"We had the idea of asking our respective Cleethorpes wards to help us out by contributing 10 per cent. We are looking for any form of sponsorship."
The Town Team and an unknown donator have also chipped into the fund.
