Young people support the pier

The Grand Pier held a place in many young Westonians hearts, and also the memories of younger days for the older generation.
It was interesting however in most of the media coverage of the disastrous event, and the days that followed, the locals who were interviewed and spoke out about the Grand Pier were of the older generation who had "lived with the Pier for years".
Here at Youth Matters we would just like to show the support, and great upset, that has come from lots of young people in the area.
Many young people have told us how they are extremely disappointed they won't be able to go onto the pier this summer. Of course we must stress the pier is open for business as usual, and people should not be deterred from going on, but it still is a great shame for the old and young alike.

So, despite the lack of youth voice in the national media, Youth Matters would like to point out that the young people do care about Weston's pier and are wishing to see it restored to its former glory as much as all other residents in the area.
