Seaside funding boost
SEASIDE cities and towns in Wales are being encouraged to take their share of a new funding pot.
The Government's Coastal Communities Fund aims to support seaside communities by developing infrastructure and organisations.
Wales Office Minister Jenny Randerson said: "From developing a falconry centre in Conwy to the funding of a marketing and activity project related to the restoration of Penarth Pier Pavilion, the fund has already made a huge difference to small communities across Wales.
"We must continue to take full advantage of the opportunities we have to turn our seaside towns into year-round success stories. I hope many more projects will put forward their own creative proposals."
