Today he will host an open surgery to allow members of the public to give their thoughts and suggestions on the pier.
PUBLIC OPINION - Several questions were tabled, but nobody asked about the timescale until the Blue Room might see the light of day again. The meeting was held outside the bar at the seaward end of the pier. Later, inside the bar, a belly dancing troupe gave those gathered a treat as they graced the floor with their exotic moves, see below. Copyright photographs © Cleaner Ocean Club Ltd Oct 2015.

PEER PIER WALK - Sunday 6th March 2014 was Lord Brett's 11th Pier Walk Challenge. Lord Burr was honoured to meet with Lord Brett of Hastings for the first time. They, along with many others endured a 16.8 mile walk from Hastings pier to Eastbourne pier in aid of numerous charities in Hastings. Lord Burr has said it was a most wondrous day and hopes to meet with Lord Brett again. He also said the Pier Walk Challenge will be an event he will most definitely participate in again. We doubt that many who sit on advisory boards are fully aware of climate change and acid oceans, despite living by the seaside.

THE LORD AWARD - The Lord giveth and the (Good) Lord may taketh away, but what of the urgently needed works to Eastbourne Pier? Helicopters and entry charges, where will it all end? Everything under the sun is being considered but the one thing that matters; the penny arcade.
