The Grand Pier is inviting people to nominate someone to have a pie in their face at the end of this month.

To mark British Pie Week this week the attraction is asking people to put forward their teachers, bosses, friends and colleagues to get a custard pie in the face.

People are being asked to write an email explaining who they would like to see get the custard pie treatment and why.

A panel of judges will choose the most imaginative entries and will invite the nominator and the nominee to the pier in Weston on March 31 at 2pm for the ceremonial splatting.

The writers of the winning nominations will win a month’s supply of Pukka Pies.

Those who receive a custard pie to the face will be rewarded by being able to nominate a charity of their choice to which the pier will make a £50 donation.

Send your custard pie nominations to before noon on March 23.
