The Hawthorns Sponsors New Clevedon Pier Visitor Centre

The Hawthorns Clevedon has signed up as main sponsor for the stunning new multi million  pound development at Clevedon’s landmark listed pier.

Some friendships are built to last and that is clearly the case with the leading retirement residency, The Hawthorns Clevedon, eagerly signing up as main sponsor for the stunning new multi million pound development at Clevedon’s landmark listed pier.

With ambitious plans to bring in hundreds of thousands of new visitors to the town, alongside a unique share offer, the residency is cementing a long-standing friendship between the two with a sponsorship deal.

The original owner of The Hawthorns, American Bill Colson provided the entry gates to Clevedon’s pier in the 1980’s. Then on two subsequent occasions, in 1992 and 1994, The Hawthorns donated £10,000 each time to support the rebuilding of the iconic structure.

Managing Director of The Hawthorns, Peter Harrison welcomed the 2015 investment. He said: "Of course our residents and everyone in the town loves the pier, it is a wonderful and elegant structure.

“But the team supporting the pier’s new development is also looking to the future, aiming to create an appealing visitor centre that will attract valuable business and thousands of new visitors to the town. We at The Hawthorns welcome that investment in all our futures."

Manager of The Hawthorns Clevedon Goldie Tripney said: “The Hawthorns has been a supporter of the Pier Trust since we first opened in 1995. The pier is an important part of the history of this town and recent exposure through television and film has really put the town on the map; we get calls asking if you really can see the pier.”

Chairman of the Pier Trust, Simon Talbot-Ponsonby, said: “We are delighted that our longstanding friends at The Hawthorns have agreed to provide financial support for the new visitor centre”.

Underlining the appeal of Clevedon’s pier, which stretches well beyond the town, one of the residents of The Hawthorns commented: “My family visit from overseas and the first thing they want to do is to see the pier.”

Described by Sir John Betjeman as the most beautiful pier in England, Clevedon was designated a Grade I listed building in 2001. More recently the 312 metre long decking served as the dance floor for One Direction when they filmed the video for their international hit You and I. Operating costs for the pier are over a million pounds every ten years.
