YES, it is sad what happened to our pier, but I felt sad when it was decided to take away the seats we liked to sit on now and then, replaced with nice new tables and chairs, but if one needs to sit there it is only allowed if food or drink are bought from the pier. There should be plenty of seating there disregarding who buys food or not. Three pounds is much too much just to sit there for a while.Also lots of schools with all age groups from maybe five up enjoyed eating their little lunch packs they had brought with them. It was a safe place for them and relaxing for their minders. Also there are people like myself who live here and could not buy food out every day. Regarding myself, I have a food allergy so I would hope the new owners reconsider their new ruling. Remember as well all the coaches of older people who sometimes need to sit for a short while and take in the view and fresh air, the only thing free on the pier. The old benches could be given to our council to be dotted about our seafront. There are not enough seats and it looks untidy with the fit and able sitting on the walls wherever they can find a space. The few seats there are, are on the edge of the pavement to catch the fumes and noise of the traffic as it rumbles by.EILEEN GILLARD - Wyvern Close, Weston
