A story in the current edition of the Standard announced that its offices in the town’s Hildreds Centre were now closed.
The paper will now hold weekly ‘reporter surgeries’ at the town’s Embassy Theatre, the first of which took takes place on Friday.
The rest of the time, reporters will be “out and about” in the community or working from home with no fixed office base.
Editor Stephen Stray said: “We really want to be at the heart of the community and our reporting team will now be out and about much more – getting to events and reporting on your stories.”
“We are delighted to be holding regular ‘reporter surgeries’ at the Embassy and would like to thank them for allowing us space in there to meet readers.”
However East Lindsey District councillor Steve O’Dare said the office’s closure would be “bad news for Skegness.”
He said: “It’s understandable but I think it’s going to be detrimental to Skegness. A lot of people like to pop into the office.”
Council leader Doreen Stephenson said: “While it is always a shame when businesses relocate away from our town centres, we understand that in the current economic climate sometimes they have to look at different ways of working.
“We support the Standard, as we would any of our local businesses, and have accepted a request for a reporter to use a desk at the Embassy Theatre one day a week to help them maintain a local presence.”
