Further to the abve post keep an eye out for the Christchurc mail on Wednesday. I have also sent an email to Cambell live on this subject and it probably wouldnt hurt if they received a few more to see the issue is important. The best thing all of us can do a the moment is get together and make as much noise as possible and do what we can to get this ban overturned as soon as we can, cause if it is left to the council to review next year then all we will get is more of the same.
I am more than happy to put my name out in the public arena and try to be heard on this matter as are Danny, Ross at brighton sports and others that use the pier reguarly. If anyone has any more ideas on this that I can be of any help with dont hesitate to ask.
