A Piece of Hythe Heritage

Choice funeral plansHere is Funeral Arranger Sarah Graham handing over a cheque for £500 to Hythe Pier Heritage Association. The money was raised via the sale of Choice Funeral Plans.

For every plan sold, £50 was put towards supporting this wonderful cause.

Run by volunteers, the groups aim is to preserve and develop the pier as a unique part of local heritage, to be enjoyed by local people and visitors to the village of Hythe. Hythe Pier is in the Guinness Book of Records for having the longest pier train in the world.

They have already revamped the waiting rooms at the end of the pier and the entrance.

The Association is going to use this £500 to kick- start their next campaign, to raise funds to restore the train tracks and work on the train itself.
