Weston’s Grand Pier is offering free wristbands to service personnel this weekend.

People who are employed by, or have worked for, a number of national organisations will have the chance to benefit from the scheme as a thank you for their hard work.

Those in the fire and rescue, police, ambulance and air ambulance services can apply, as well as RNLI, NHS employees.

The British Army, Royal Navy, Air Force and Marines personnel including cadets and veterans can also sign-up to the pier's initiative.

Group marketing manager at the pier, Lucy Graham, said: "The emergency services and armed forces play a vital role in protecting us and our country.
