“Down Memory Lane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2009

What super memories of the Grand Pier from our time in Weston Super Mare, My two young children always enjoyed a visit to the pier, a ride on the train if they were tired, and the delights of the various rides. My favourite was the "Beat the Clock" Ball game, my skill honed after numerous attempts. I would love to see a modern version of this game on the new pier please? We enjoyed an ice-cream before going home and spent many happy times there. it was devastating to see the fire damage, but Weston is a lovely place and the new pier will be a credit to its owners. We will definitely be there on the re-opening day to welcome back an old friend! The Starr Family.
