I have to say that I am thrilled that Worthing pier has been refurbished. I have watched over the past few months how workmen have been stripping out the old tat from the southern pavilion that used to be a nightclub, and started to open up and repaint and re-floor splendid art-deco edifice. It opened to the public this bank holiday weekend on Good Friday, and although not fully finished, I have to say how impressed and delighted I have been by the work so far. The spacious pier head now houses a fabulous tea room and bar. The general plan, the organisers told me (they rent the pier from the council) is to have the end of the pier as an events venue as well as refreshments for the general public. I am looking forward to the art exhibitions, music recitals and other creative shows. It should be fun.
For me, with the summer coming, I am seeking some where to get out of the house and write and find inspiration. Although, when asked, they do not as yet have wifi connectivity, it would be a perfect location to sit with a coffee and the Chromebook (tethered to my Samsung S3 phone maybe) and write my novels. I have three Splidge stories to bash out and rather than sit inside when the sun is shining, I would fancy being out and about.
So, I wish the Worthing Pier a great success and I hope to be found sitting here being creative frequently over the coming months and years.
