    On  Saturday 11th July 2015 we had the half way celebration for this 2 year project of Capturing the past, recording the present, discovering the future of Worthing pier. The day was kicked off by the youth mayor and deputy youth mayor welcoming everyone to the event
    We then had our first series of readings; newspaper articles from the past present and ideas of articles form the future.
    Then was the highlight of the day; the unveiling of the plaque on the end of the southern pavilion that shows where our time capsule has been planted in the end of the pier. Also being reviled was the w3pf wind break glass panels.
    Every one then went back to the top of the southern pavilion for soft drinks and nibbles before more readings of stories and poetry. Then came the time to award the towns budding artist , writers and poets. Then reading peoples memories of the pier of yesteryear. Then to end the perfect day was a closing speech by Worthing Civic Mayor.
    During the whole day we had face painting, colouring , painting, and crosswords for the little ones and an exhibition of work and sharing memories for everyone.
    Fun was had by all celebrating together.
