THE Birnbeck Regeneration Trust has announced it will hold a public meeting in Weston to discuss the future of the crumbling pier.

The meeting will take place at the Boulevard United Reformed Church, in Waterloo Street, on August 7. Doors will open at 6pm.

A spokesman for the trust said: “Following a successful meeting between the owners of the pier and the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Birnbeck Regeneration Trust will hold a public meeting.

“The trust will give a brief history of the pier and cover what work has happened recently. It will also discuss what action is required going forward to secure the historic and unique pier for the people of Weston, its surrounding area and the rest of the UK.”

The trust has also announced the Pier View information centre, next to the pier, will be open on weekdays from 10am-9pm. Volunteers will be on hand to answer queries and reminisce about the pier’s history.
