Pier plan to remember Jeremy Birch

The original Hastings Pier was designed by the noted 19th-century architect and engineer Eugenius Birch.

Its extensive restoration, currently under way to great acclaim, is in no small way due to the efforts of the late Jeremy Birch.

It seems to me that there must be an opportunity to find a name for the new pier that recognizes, and stands as a memory to, both men.
