Ok, contrary to what’s implied by the photo, we don’t actually meet underneath the Pier – we meet in the Bristol Arms, normally once a month. We are a group of people passionate about our community, the Shotley Peninsula and obviously buying and restoring the pier. We would love you to join us. You’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome. We are ambitious. We have a plan. We get stuff done. It’s a warm, friendly, social environment. It’s quite incredible how many diverse skills and backgrounds we have in our community. It’s a gift. Our current collective skillset includes Pier engineering, construction, hospitality, journalism, PR, marketing, events, history, public sector, governance, art, filming, photography, in-depth knowledge of Royal Mail (helpful for our Railway Pier link), outdoor spaces, conservation, restoration, fishing, boating, barges, yachting, marine and river specialists and drone-flyers. We aim to buy and restore the Pier and to make it as inclusive and accessible as possible. Your skills and contribution would be welcomed and appreciated.
