On April 14, Anthony Brenner, former BALPPA chairman from Teignmouth Pier, sadly lost his battle with COVID-19.

Anthony Bremmer worked with his father in the late 1950s. In 1961, his father bought the Grand Pier at Teignmouth. In 2002, Brenner became chairman of the BALPPA Trade Association for theme parks, aquariums, leisure parks, piers, zoos and other visitor attraction sites in the UK.

Brenner started to suffer from dementia, not long after losing his wife in 2009. He spent the last three years of his life being cared for in Exeter.
