Restoration work is in its halfway stage on the long-awaited development on the Mumbles Pier. The multi-million-pound pier project began in earnest on June 1st and will be completed by the end of the year.
The reconstruction will cost £3.2 million and will see the installation of additional decking, designed to enlarge the amount of public space nearer the foreshore.
Construction crews have moved period Victorian features for storage and refurbishment, ahead of partial demolition of the pier.
The original columns supporting the pier and installed in 1898, however, are still deemed up to the job and will remain in place.
Singing boy band Collabro who won Britain's Got Tallent in 2014 was performing at the Grand Theatre on Friday evening.
Hundreds of Collaborators turned out for the show, but surprisingly they did not fill the 1014 seater theatre.
Their performance, as usual, was to perfection singing songs from musical theatre and other well-known shows.
Jamie Lambert and Matt Pagan as always got involved with their slapstick bit of fun on stage just to brighten up the evening.
Some Collaborators said: "It would be fantastic if the boys had an orchestra backing them, now that would be something."
Collabro will now finish their 52 event tour at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

THE RED ARROWS ARE BACK
Good Friday Silent Walk of Witness
Good Friday this year is on 19 April and gathering by 12:45pm outside St Mary’s Church will be Christians from Swansea Churches and we hope visitors and others who will join this witness. They will be taking a short walk from St Mary’s up Whitewalls, along Oxford Street to meet with fellow Christians with members of The Salvation Army on Oxford Street. The silent procession of the cross will make its way to join in a joint witness with members of The Salvation Army where we will sing alongside the Salvation Army Band. The event will end with a short ecumenical service after the procession of the cross returns to St Mary’s.
Rev Ian Folks, Chair of Unitas, asks “that as a Christian or someone searching for faith you take this opportunity join together and mark this day with prayer. If you are a shopper, visitor or taking a work break do come and join us”
Unitas represents churches in the city and is a gathering together of churches in Swansea that shares faith together. A wide range of traditions are represented in our group and this walk and gathering is just one way that the many followers of Jesus can show their unity of faith thus “Unitas - sharing faith together”.
