Shotley Pier Project

I am absolutely delighted to be the Patron of this fantastic community project. The team has shown impressive levels of effort, enthusiasm and determination to get the project to this stage, and I look forward to collaborating further with them in future.

Having both walked down the top end of the pier, and had a boat trip to see the furthest end, it was clear to see just how much work will be needed to complete the regeneration. However, with the generosity and support from residents on the peninsula and further afield, I am sure that the Shotley Pier will have a bright future ahead. I think this once again underlines the strength of community spirit in Shotley.


Repair work due to start on worn-out pier - thanks to EU windfall

Renovation work on a Suffolk pier that has seen better days is set to start soon - thanks to a European Union (EU) grant.

Supporters of Shotley Pier say they are "delighted" after scooping £145k from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
