"On the night of Monday 11th March 2013, as a result of high tides and gale force winds, Swanage Pier sustained major damage to the walkway.

We are so grateful to a number of volunteers who helped to brace the affected section in the aftermath of the storm. The Pier is still open to the public up to the dog-leg but its a race against time because the Pierhead remains closed until we have the funds to carry out the necessary repairs."

Money is needed to get the repairs done quickly before the season gets under way...

if you have fished the pier in the past or intend to fish the pier in the future then please dip into your pocket to support this work...a pound or two will help.

I have nagged/bribed them to put a PayPal link on the site to make it easy... no rummaging around looking for the cheque book or a stamp, just click a couple of times..
