UKIP’s Louth and Horncastle candidate for the upcoming general election took his campaigning to Mablethorpe last week.

The Lincolnshire County Councillor, who currently serves the Tattershall and Coningsby area, broadened his horizons with a visit to three of Mablethorpe’s key organisations on Friday, February 6.

These included The Linkage Cafe, Furnichurch and Hope House.

Mr Mair expressed his appreciation of the hard work that each of these three organisations do, all in their own ways, to make Mablethorpe a better place and to aid those that need it most.

He said: “At a time of slashing austerity cuts we should be doing all we can to assist organisations such as these to survive.

“We should do this by making it easier for them to find grants and finance without having to wade through reams of paperwork and regulations and stop hindering their work by thoughtless and callous interpretation of rules.”

He added: “Mablethorpe is one of the most deprived areas in the country with a very high level of unemployment and those of us who can help should do all in our power to help the area to regenerate.

“Hopefully this will keep to a minimum the desperate people who need the help of organisations 
like Furnichurch and Hope House.

“At the same time we should celebrate the success of Linkage Group in helping people who would otherwise be left to float separate from mainstream society into useful roles that contribute to our communities and give them a sense of self-confidence, fulfilment and independence.”
