Time to back pier by buying shares

PIER support! Come on Hastonians - where are you?

The town is eventually going to get one of its most famous landmarks back in use, but the target budget of £500,000 for the facilities that will eventually be on the pier is still around £300,000 short.

Our town has a population of around 90,000 people and yet only about 840 individuals have bought shares. For a minimum of £100 you can not only own a small part of the most iconic structure in the area but you can also have more of a say as to what is eventually put on the pier.

They have just extended the period for buying shares to April, so now is your chance to play a small part in local history.
