John Cole, local photographer has an exhibition celebrating the people who have been working to restore Hastings pier.  John said: “I began it in May 2014 and will continue photographing the workers until it is completed. So far, I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph a huge variety of workers: carpenters, steel erectors, engineers, project managers, barge workers, crane operators, contracts managers, coppersmiths, and apprentice workers, to name but a few, all heroes in my book for the work they’re doing. “

The Pier Hub is in the entrance to the Old White Rock Baths just east of the pier.
