Visitors will be disappointed

There was an article in this Sunday’s Sunday Mirror with a picture of Hastings Pier.

I do not feel this is a good advertisement for Hastings Pier, people are going to be disappointed if they think they are going to see anything remotely like the picture.

A few garden sheds for shops, miles of planking and hand-fitted screws (not of any real interest) and a few children’s rides – and the central building looking like something built out of a shipwreck.

Not remotely like a seaside pier.
