The Grand Pier has secured a grant to help with its efforts to go greener.
The Weston landmark was granted £15,000 by the West of England Combined Authority, with support from the Grant Aid consultancy.
The pier's general manager, Tim Moyle, said: "We were pleased to receive the grant, which recognises our continuing commitment towards operating a more sustainable business."
The money will be used to fund two electric vehicles on the seafront, worth £52,000, replacing the current diesel truck on-site.
Moyle added: "We are committed to doing everything we can to help protect the planet for future generations and are willing to invest tens of thousands of pounds to do so."
