Thornbury Pier
Residents are advised that the Thornbury Pier will remain closed until next summer, with a tentative reopening scheduled for June 2021.
The decision to close the pier was made to allow for the much needed pier resurfacing project to be completed and due to the limited space on the pier to accommodate physical distancing.
