Therese has warmly welcomed a new £3m Coastal Revival Fund which will help kick-start the revival of at-risk heritage along the Suffolk Coast.
Therese said: "This is a perfect opportunity for Felixstowe - supporting projects looking to unlock the economic potential of our seafront. The fund is specifically designed to help seaside towns become year round destinations, supporting our local tourism sector and sustaining jobs."
Therese added: "Alongside this, seaside areas will also receive support through the formation of new Coastal Community Teams, able to access up to £10,000, to tackle the specific challenges their area. I will be liaising with local community leaders along our coast to take this opportunity forward."
Details of how to apply to be a Coastal Community Team and further information about the Coastal Revival Fund will be published on the Gov.uk website shortly.
