About this deal

The pier opened in 1867, having been designed to attract the thousands of visitors brought by paddle steamers from all over the Bristol Channel.

I have been hesitant about posting this, mostly because it’s really nobody’s business but my own. Over the past few months my lifelong on-off war with depression has hit a rough patch. I’ve had to cancel travel, both abroad, and to the Hay Festival where I was supposed to have been an attraction. My posts on social media and on this blog have dwindled to almost nothing. People have begun to notice – well, two people have, and kindly sent notes of concern (thank you — you know who you are). So that’s what prompted me to write.

It was lovely to read of a time before the distractions of the internet and social media, etc. Maureen and her family didn't have a lot, but they made the best of everything and truly cherished each other and their friends.

He says, "We're one of the busiest stations in the Bristol channel, somewhere in the region of 50 to 55 calls a year. This story begins in 1930 and spans through to the end of the 2nd World War in 1945. It felt like Maureen’s life had been so much longer than this, so much tragedy for one still so young.A regeneration trust is the only way forward unless some private person is prepared to sink money for no return into the project." Asharply observant play... makes the audience sit up and pay attention."★★★★ Love London Love Culture Southend Pier celebrated its centenary on 23 July 1935 when Lord Richie of Dundee, chairman of the Port of London Authority unveiled a bronze plaque on the pierhead. [26] The centenary was not celebrated in 1930, which would have been 100 years after its first opening, as 1835 reflects the date when the Admiralty began to include Southend Pier on their navigation charts.

The derelict and unsafe building at the end of the pier was demolished, and replaced by a simple viewing and fishing platform. The rest of the pier was also restored.

I must say this book was misleading. I was expecting much more from this description. The publisher description may seem simple but in fact, this book was very simple. The view last week of Hastings pier, closed for repairs by the owner Sheikh Abid Gulzar. Photograph: Antonio Olmos/The Observer I realised why I never liked jokes,” says a character in Danny Robins’s new play, channelling comedian-of-the-moment Hannah Gadsby. “It’s because they’re almost always based on a lie.” So should standups make people laugh, or tell their truth? And what if the standup in question – a TV superstar, loved by millions – is a closet bigot? That’s the stuff of End of the Pier, an argument about comedy that flares occasionally into dramatic life.

A completely unexpected story that feels as if it tells the true stories of those at home and at war, and the changes, sacrifices and little moments that prove the desire and determination to move on and keep going aren’t wasted. Taylor has brought these characters to life with a gentle touch, in showing the innocence and surprisingly astute views of the characters as children, then allowing them to develop into adults in the most difficult of times, experiencing loves, losses and little victories, the story reads like one of a life, or lives, lived to the fullest allowed in spite of the obstacles facing them. I’ve not read the others in this trilogy, a situation I intend to remedy immediately, I don't want to say much more for fear of spoiling it for anyone, but I was totally immersed in Maureen's story as she grows into a young woman. She made me laugh out loud at times and I have had a tear in my eye on more than one occasion. When We Danced At The End Of The Pier is a beautiful story, set before and during the second world war.READ MORE– If you are considering other things to do in Essex we really enjoyed a visit to Audley End part of the English Heritage.
