Clacton Pier to play host to 'special NHS appreciation party'

A special NHS appreciation party is being planned at Clacton Pier in Essex. It's to thank frontline workers for everything they're doing to help others during the pandemic.

Staff at Clacton Pier are looking to stage the event once they are able to re-open the attraction and restrictions have been lifted by the Government.

They say they'll be contacting the Pier's regular suppliers and entertainers. The event will also include a 'firework extravaganza' to ensure it's a memorable occasion.

Every year the Pier's staff arrange a weekend for the emergency services and armed forces, but they felt this time it was important to do something special for NHS workers:
