SUPPORTERS of Bognor Regis Pier have met the town’s MP to explain their hopes for its future.
Some of the 11 members of Bognor Pier Trust and Nick Gibb, the Conservative MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, were given a tour of the well-known structure by its owner, John Ayers.
Mr Gibb said: “It’s good the trust is getting together to work out how we can save the pier and improve what is a key landmark in the town.
“We tried many years ago, but were unsuccessful because the pier is Grade II-listed and not Grade II*.
“It’s wonderful this group of people want to try again. I support them absolutely and will do everything I can to help them.
“We need to get funding for the pier. I will certainly help to arrange meetings to help the trust put their case to receive grants. Improving the pier will improve the entire town.”
