THE Pier owned by Eastbourne’s Sheikh Abid Gulzar has had a massive response to his plans for a Winter Wonderland.

He owns both Eastbourne and Hastings Pier.

A spokesperson said: “WOW what a great week, we are overwhelmed with the response for Hastings Pier Winter Wonderland and so many great comments with good luck wishes.

“We will not disappoint your expectations and give Hastings what it deserves, a great Winter Wonderland experience with an amazing Huge Ice Rink.

“Due to Covid restrictions we are operating restricted capacity on the Rink and some slots are filling fast, so we do advise to book early to save disappointment.

“Remember if the event is cancelled due to a Covid-19 lockdown you will receive a full refund. See you all soon for a Hot Chocolate.”
