We are very fortunate in living in such a beautiful area and having the benefit of so many voluntary groups in the town catering for a wide range of interests. The Seaford Community Partnership is a group of volunteers that seeks effective ways of making Seaford an even better place to work and relax. We are an alliance of groups (such as Tree Wardens, Youth Forum, Wave Leisure, Cycle Seahaven, the Community Cinema, etc.) representatives from Seaford Town Council, Lewes District Council and East Sussex County Council, statutory authorities (such as the police and the youth service) and voluntary and business organisations (such as Chamber of Commerce, Seniors’ Forum, community and sports groups).
We aim to do things rather than talking about by working with partners to create the Exercise Path along the seafront, the Heritage Trail the Beach Garden as well as planting over 1300 trees in streets open spaces and school playing fields. As well as achieving such things we have obtained funding by obtaining grants from the Big Tree Plant (£5000) and assisted the Youth Forum to obtain £20,000 to provide the all-age open air gym in the Salts. Residents have also assisted us with the cost of trees planted on ggrass verges.
We focus on what residents and the business community tell us they want by undertaking questionnaire exercises and held an exhibition of the community's ideas for improvements on the Seafront whilst maintaining its unspoilt nature. We organised two well attended public meetings on the Environmental Agency's proposed flood defences for the town.
We currently have a number of active projects - Improving Splash Point, creating an open air entertainment area at the Martello Tower and Improving Transport and non car access.
We cannot do this alone and need your help. Come to our AGM; give us your ideas on how we can enhance your town; join us and use your skills in getting things done; help us identify sources of funds; help with tree planting and beach garden maintenance.
