One year on from last December's devastating tidal surge which flooded homes and businesses on the East Anglian coast and residents in Waldringfield in Suffolk are celebrating the near completion of new flood defences.
Campaigners raised £900,000 for concrete walls and defence gates.
The MP Therese Coffey will tour the site later today with local people and councillors.
"We are delighted that the project is nearing completion. Everyone has worked so hard to make this happen and we are grateful for the help and support we have received. We can all look forward to Christmas knowing that we are better protected from any future events".
The project to improve flood protection with innovative defences and flood gates is the first community-led project to be delivered from the new Deben estuary plan.
"We are pleased to have supported the Waldringfield Flood Defence Group in both their Coastal Community Funding bid and the development of a local flood defence scheme for the residents and businesses in the village. The community have shown tremendous resilience and organisation to have achieved so much in the twelve months since the tidal surge. I am so impressed by what they have done; to deliver a new flood defence project in one year is unprecedented. It's a great example of what communities can achieve."

Essex County Council is facing the biggest cut in government funding in the Anglia region with nearly £49 million lopped off its budget.
Early assessments of the Local Government finance settlement, which sets out how much money each local authority will receive from the government in 2015/2016, indicate the Essex could be facing a cut of around 13 per cent on its funding.
“Every successive round of cuts makes the challenge harder. We have already secured so many efficiencies. We will continue to work creatively with our dedicated and innovative officers to find new solutions but make no mistake – it will be tough.”
