Hythe Pier held its first fun day today to help heighten awareness of the restoration work that need doing, and to raise some funds too.
As the pier is made up of planks, some bright spark named it Walk The Planks and gave the day a pirate theme. Genius. So I've spent the day drawing pirate cartoons of children and selling my books to those who came and enjoyed our important and much valued Victorian pier. It was a busy day, so fingers crossed it did some good, and that we can do it all again next year.
