THE attractions at the Grand Pier in Weston have just got even better thanks to a £250,000 investment.

Brand new coin-operated games, additional rides and general improvements have been completed to make sure the pier is ready for big crowds throughout the height of the summer season.

Some of the new rides have been made specifically to cater for younger children to enable a full family experience and the pier’s management team has also introduced a variety of new deals for the summer.

The attraction’s general manager Paul Charalambous said: “On the back of this fresh investment in our facilities and buildings, combined with the hard work my team have put on during the winter, I’m confident the pier is in great shape for summer.”

The pier has just started a new deal aimed at teenagers and students which means they can buy a half price wristband on Thursday evenings.
