Pictures show what Mablethorpe children's holiday now looks like since its closure

Pictures have emerged of the once-loved children's holiday home at Mablethorpe and how it looks since its closure. Thousands of youngsters enjoyed holidays by the sea at the much-loved venue that their families would not have otherwise been able to afford. The Leicester Childrens Holiday Centre in Mablethorpe closed last year and since then the building has stood empty.

A decision was made early last year to close the 1930s building and offer holidays which would 'comply with the ethics and standards of the charity' at what it called "carefully selected coastal sites". The building sold for around GBP250,000 last year. At the time of sale, charity chairman Shaun O'Donnell said: "The building had become uneconomical to run and we were having to use a lot of money from our reserves to maintain it."
