The laser light display took place to mark the end of the first year of the pier being in the ownership of the Mayne, Manning and Llewellyn family.

Marking the first anniversary in style, a spectacular laser show was seen by an estimated crowd of between 400 to 500 people.

Families and holidaymakers had gathered on the promenade, in the adjacent car park and in Wellington Gardens at 9pm to watch the show, with the roof of the pier lit up as beams of light danced across the night sky.
