Weston's Grand Pier is set to open a new ice cream parlour this weekend as it continues to return to full capacity.

Wonder Bubble will aim to 're-invent' seaside treats by offering Hong Kong inspired desserts to residents.

The coastline attraction reopened its non-essential retail stores on April 12, as part of the Government's lockdown roadmap, and its head of operations looks forward to further openings on May 17.

Remy Haudecoeur said: “We are very excited to see people on the prom again and are so pleased that our new offerings are a hit with the public.

"Our latest addition, Wonder Bubble, is a unique concept and we cannot wait for our visitors to try it. I am personally delighted that our offerings now reflect the British seaside identity, showcasing all the fun of the pier."

Wonder Bubble will offer a trademark waffle bubble ice cream, combining candyfloss and locally sourced Marshfield ice cream.

The latest addition, alongside other units, will be using 90 per cent compostable packaging as the pier continues its efforts to improve the town's environment.
