Seaford Bonfire Society was involved in Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee celebrations by building and lighting the commemorative beacon on Seaford Head. The beacon was one of 50 official bonfires built across East Sussex to celebrate the special event and it was lit following a laser light show on the Martello Fields. At the end of the display a shaft of green laser light struck the beacon which burst into flames and immediately joined thousands of others across the country.

Boys and belles from the bonfire society ran a stall selling cakes and joined in the Jubilee parade.

As there has been an increased interest in joining the society there will be an open day at the Society Headquarters, the White Lion Pub, Claremont Road, Seaford from 11am to 4pm on Sunday 17th June. Prospective members, young and old, are invited to attend for a chat and to see examples of the costumes that the society wear. There will be advice on costume making and clothes and accessories for sale. Society Chairman, Steve Russell explained: "It is great fun to be part of the society, so why not come along to our open day and learn how you can dress up and march in processions in Seaford and all over Sussex. Members also act as marshals both en-route and at the fire-site. Come and join the most exciting club in Seaford!"
