I WAS delighted to see on the front page of last week's Weston Mercury the picture of the historic 104-year-old Weston Grand Pier Pavilion that burnt to the ground in July has been beautifully restored to its former glory by Scale Models Weston of Alfred Street as a scale model.Complete with flags flying high, all its well loved rides and the shore end buildings as it was the day before the devastating fire on July 28 it is part of an exhibition in Weston's North Somerset Museum. It's a pity pier owners Kerry and Michelle Michael didn't own the boarded up Tropicana, and Weston's derelict Birnbeck Pier, which lies in such a terrible state at the other end of the beach. If they did, I'm sure they would have moved mountains to get them back on their feet in our seaside resort for all our holiday makers and residents. Kerry Michael is, in my opinion, one in a million for doing so much for Weston. I'm sure the magnificent structure of the scale model of the Grand Pier Pavilion at the North Somerset Museum in Weston will be a sight for sore eyes for all our visitors.D F COURTNEY - Victoria Park, Weston
