The Leader can reveal that the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will be visiting Mablethorpe tomorrow morning (Thursday, August 1).

The Rt Rev Justin Welby was enthroned as the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury at Canterbury Cathedral on March 21 this year.

The Archbishop is making his way to Mablethorpe as he is one of the key note speakers at this year’s HTB Focus Week 2013 which is being hosted at Haven’s Golden Sands Holiday Park in the resort.

The Archbishop made the national news last week when he declared war on the payday loan company ‘Wonga’.

There are unconfirmed reports that TV adventurer Bear Grylls was in the resort as part of the Focus Week on Monday, but the reports have not been confirmed.
