Seaford Floods, Past and Future": Partnership AGM
Monday May 23rd 7.45 for 8pm at the Clinton Centre
The risk of flooding is a hot topic in Seaford. After the Seaford Community Partnership's two over-subscribed public Flood Meetings 18 months ago, Town Councillors and others formed a flood working group. Then just last month (April 23rd) the Seaford Community Flood Fair took place.
Now the SCP is continuing the theme with an illustrated talk "Seaford under Threat! "by local historian and author Kevin Gordon, showing the floods, wave damage and storm problems that have beset the town including the Great Flood of 1875; and the efforts with sea walls, groynes and beach reconstruction.
SCP is holding its AGM at 7.45 for 8.00 at Clinton Centre on Monday 23rd May. After a very brief business meeting (don't worry: they aren't recruiting Committee Members!) Kevin will give his talk.
That will be followed by a brief rundown of SCP's activities over 12 months, and its future plans.
Activities / Plans have included Tree Planting; maintaining the Beach Garden; planning better access and wider use for our jetty-turned-Pier at Splash Point; the existing Youth Task Group; planned Public Performance Area at the Martello; and maintenance and improvement of the Heritage Trail and the Seafront Exercise Trail. SCP also organises the Cross-Seaford-Transport Working Group, works with Southern and Network Rail to bring about station and service improvements, and is part of the Impact Seaford project of economic regeneration.
As the name suggests, the Community Partnership works with all local Councils, Environment Agency, Railways and access groups to jointly improve our town. Your input is very welcome, so come along to the meeting and have your say.
The next meeting of the Transport Working Group will be in July (date tba) from 7pm in the Baptist Church Hall Seaford
