Much to offer

AS someone who has visited the Grand Pier in Weston on many occasions, and having so many happy childhood memories of Weston, it was hugely disappointing news to hear that an inferno had gutted the pier. It is especially disappointing given that the Michael family had just acquired the pier and invested so much time and effort in improving it.The pier has long been the greatest and most recognisable landmark in Weston and I have no doubt that just as it was re-built following the fire of the 30s it will be so again.I hope this disaster does not prevent people from visiting Weston and, as a result, adversely impact on tourism in the area. After all, there is a great deal still to do in Weston and the area still has much to offer to visitors and residents alike. I also hope that essential action is taken to ensure the pier is restored to its former state and that these efforts are fully supported locally and nationally.DAVID BRADLEY - Weston's Labour Prospective Parliamentary Candidate
