LETTER: Aiming for the best in the land

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to come and visit me at my new venture – Eastbourne Pier – on Saturday afternoon.

It was an opportunity for the public to express their views and opinions about what I and my team should do with this wonderful iconic site.

I work seven days a week for the good of Eastbourne, and our focus now is to make the pier the very best in the country, and for it to be at the very heart of the Eastbourne community.

I am delighted to say that more than 100 people were present on Saturday, and I felt the question and answer session with them was particularly helpful.

In the meantime, if you wish to put your ideas forward and you haven’t yet had the chance to, there is still the time and opportunity to do so.

I appreciate everyone could not have turned up on Saturday so all views are welcome throughout our journey as a custodian of the pier.

I can be written to at abid@lionhotelsltd.com or Lions Pier, Grand Parade, Eastbourne BN21 3EL
