Karen Chapman, Suffolk Growth Partnership Manager, said: "Working with Public Health colleagues, Suffolk Growth is pleased to be able to support our town centres in minimising the risk of Covid during their festive activities and events.

"We were very impressed with the quality of applications and consideration to Covid prevention measures that will be put in place to keep both residents and visitors safe as Suffolk enters the winter months.”

The funding will support adaptations to local facilities, equipment, communications and management of key activities this winter.
