TALKS are under way with potential businesses and big wheel operators interested in setting up at South Parade Pier.

Solent Carpentry Services, based in Castle Trading Estate, Portchester, has also been appointed by the owners to carry out repair work to the outside of the pier’s buildings.

The mood in the Ware family camp has been upbeat since they took over the keys of the pier from Fred Nash and Dawn Randall last year and began urgent repairs to the pier’s structure, which was in danger of collapse.

Today the new owners revealed ambitious plans to revitalise the pier.
