The Essex County Council has approved the Town Council’s application for grant of £6305.00 to restore six more seafront shelters. The judging panel met in mid-December and awarded a second grant from the Community Initiatives Fund. The six shelters are in Frinton and Walton and are the last ones requiring substantial work. Tendring District Council has also offered a grant of £1000.00. It is hoped that work will start in April 2007.
