Instead of filling empty retail and other town centre premises with more charity & coffee shops, establish a museum & art centre. There’s a massive amount of local knowledge, photos and memorabilia to get one off the ground. The ‘traditional seaside’ through the ages. Staffed by volunteers (plenty of retirees looking for adventure) and an artist in residence commissioned for a time limited period to capture the area in the 21st Century, working with community groups, schools & others. Involves the community, provides a rainy day visiting spot for tourists and injects some fun into the town as well as a glimpse of culture.
