Staff at the pier, in Marine Parade, picked prize winners at random throughout the day and handed them treats which included an annual family membership, a free fish and chips meal at the Boardwalk Café, coffee and cake at the Tiffany’s Tea Room and toys.

Pier general manager Tim Moyle said: “ We are always looking for extra ways to spread a little joy on the pier and this day gave us the perfect opportunity.

“Special treats were given to lots of visitors, from families who were delighted with memberships to couples who enjoyed some fish and chips.

“Seeing the delight on their faces when they were already enjoying a fun day out was wonderful and we hope it made for a special weekend and a happy ending to the February half-term for many.”
