PEOPLE are being invited to put their artistic talents to use and help raise funds for Clevedon Pier.
You can buy personalised deckchairs for children like this costing £89 online from the Bags of Love gift company
Supporters of the pier are launching a Design a Deckchair competition to help raise funds towards a new £1.6 million visitor centre on the pier.
The winning designs, chosen by a panel of judges, will be made into full size deckchairs which will go on show at a special exhibition at the Toll House Gallery in August.
The deckchairs will then be sold at a special auction in October raising money for the project for a new £1.6 visitor centre.
It costs £6 to enter a design and each winner of the competition will receive a full size deckchair of their designs.
It is hoped the exhibition will feature around 30 deckchairs and organisers are hoping local artists, craftspeople, residents and local schoolchildren will get involved,
The closing date for the submissions of design ideas is Sunday, May 5, and the winners will be chosen by a panel of judges.
Details of how to enter are available from www.clevedonpier.com website or by contacting the pier on 01275 878846.
