Hastings Pier reopens to the public after three-month closure

Hastings Pier reopened its gates to the public this morning (Monday, April 1) after a three-month closure.

Owner Sheikh Abid Gulzar arrived shortly before 11am to open the gates and welcome in the public. While the retail kiosks remain closed at the moment, including the fish and chip unit, Mr Gulzar hopes to open them ‘as soon as possible’ and says he is holding interviews today for new pier staff. Mr Gulzar said: “It’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining and Hastings Pier is once again open. It may be April 1 but this is no joke, I am going to make Hastings Pier great again. I am building up a great committed team who are 100 per cent behind my plans and ideas.”
