Final curtain for Mr Punch - for now
PUBLISHED: 10:00 09 September 2012
THE famous shows by Weston's Punch and Judy man Paul Wheeler have come to a close as the summer season ends.
Thousands of children have been entertained by Punch and Judy’s antics on the Grand Pier over the school summer holidays.
Pier bosses offered Paul space to perform after North Somerset Council upped the rent at his usual seafront spot.
Paul said: “I want to say a big thank you to everyone at the Grand Pier for making me feel so welcome over the past few months and for giving Punch and Judy a new home. I am very much looking forward to coming back for October half-term.”
