A charity committed to revitalising Weston’s crumbling Birnbeck Pier hosted a summer fair to raise further funds.

The Birnbeck Regeneration Trust event was held at Boulevard United Reformed Church in Waterloo Street and welcomed a host of visitors throughout Saturday.

It featured a range of stalls, including paintings, photographs and fairtrade goods.

A spokesman said: “It was extremely well attended and raised more than £300. The emphasis was on handmade local products.”

To donate to the trust, text BBRT15 £10 to 70070 or visit www.birnbeckregenerationtrust.org.uk
