Staff at Weston General Hospital and Locking Road walk-through testing site were greeted with pancakes this morning (Tuesday), courtesy of the Grand Pier.

As a thank you for their continued work during the coronavirus pandemic, the Grand Pier cooked 500 pancakes for the staff and, with the help of a donation from Britvic, handed out 200 bottles of soft drink on Shrove Tuesday.

"As a heartfelt thank you to all healthcare workers at the hospital in Weston we thought we would show our gratitude by delivering a little treat for them on pancake day.”

The Grand Pier remains closed under lockdown restrictions but its owners have recently begun work on transforming the abandoned Seaquarium lot into a restaurant with an onsite bakery, café and mini-golf complex.
