Actor and Honorary Patron of National Pier Society, Timothy West CBE, officially opened Swanage Pier and Marine Villas at an event attended by Greendale director, Rob Hooker.

Rob said: “It was a great event with Tim West cutting the ribbon on the pier, a string quartet played and lovely food and drinks provided by the Swanage pier cafe.I

“I wasn’t lucky enough to have a good chat with Tim whilst we queued for the buffet. As well as being an Honorary Patron of the National Pier Society, and of course a well known and loved actor, Tim is a very keen historian and into boating and paddle steamers – the Waveley still docks at Swanage Pier. Many will have recently seen his programmes on canal boating with his wife, Prunella Scales.

“There was a lot of very positive talk amongst guests about the Marine Villas, which Greendale are immensely proud to have been involved with; restoring dilapidated old Grade II listed building back to its former Georgian glory, with a new exhibition space, shop, and cafĂ© with a stunning glass extension.”
