Symbolic event unlocks vision for pier

The group campaigning to restore Ramsey's Victorian pier reached two milestones at the weekend.

The Queen's Pier Restoration Trust held a symbolic gate unlocking on Sunday afternoon (1 May).

Despite the 'opening' the pier remains out of bounds for the public.

The group was handed the keys after being awarded a government licence to carry out a full survey of the structure.

A crowd funding appeal's also been set up to raise £40,000 to restore the first of the pier's bays.

Sunday's gate opening the gate has helped boost the Just Giving Facebook page - although a long slog lies ahead, with more than £1.5 million needed to restore the entire pier.
