I’m pleased to announce that today the Bognor Pier Trust working with Arun District Council have secured a £10,000 grant from the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
The Trust joined to form a Heritage Quarter Coastal Community Team to help secure this funding which was part of the criteria and has the potential to secure larger grants for the town and the pier.
Bognor Pier Trust was identified back in the spring in a press release from the DCLG as a potential project and the trust pursued this with Arun District Council to formulate a bid.
I’m thrilled that we have been selected. This is really good news for the Bognor Pier Trust and Bognor Regis.
All our hard work is starting to come together and although we have a long journey ahead we are making good steps and now we are being recognised by the Government.
On behalf of the Trust and the directors I would like to thank you all for your continued support on our Journey to secure a restored Pier for Bognor Regis.
Chairman Bognor Pier Trust
