Weston Pier fire
The pier was built in 1933
Prayer for Weston's Grand Pier pavillion
The burning down of Weston's Grand Pier pavillion has greatly affected thousands of people including Julia Barnes who sent in this prayer.
Dear Lord, Thank you for Weston Pier.
It was a place we held so dear,
And though it’s gone it will return,
And for that day our hearts will yearn.
But in these days when our friend's laid low,
And smoulders in the afterglow -
We think a little of the fun
Our pier has given everyone.
We played on it. We walked. We sang.
Ate candy floss and laughed and ran.
We watched the Punch and Judy Show
And saw sweet donkeys down below.
Ice-cream treats and funny hats.
Seagulls soaring overhead,
Surfboards as the times moved on!
And days of joy on which we fed.
We went with families, Uncles, Aunts,
And strolled on it before the dance
We went to at the Winter Gardens -
When all was gay and "beg your pardons."
"Beg pardons" as we mourn our loss
But in You who died upon a Cross
Look forward to the times to come
For You look after everyone."
