GIFTS FROM SAINT GEORGE
May 30 2013.
For the third time in as many weeks, the Seahaven branch of 'The Royal Society of St George' has made gifts to local good causes.
Firstly, 300 special badges were presented to Julia Dunk from the South Heighten Village to help with the Coronation Street Party on June the 2nd, which celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation.
Next, the branch joined with Seaford Rotary Club to present a new water heater to the St James's Trust's Drop-In Centre in the Old Town Hall in Seaford.
The latest gift was the presentation of six Agogo Bells to the band and choir of Seaford Primary School. This arose from a visit by the President of the Branch, Don Mabey MBE, and the Chairman, Bob Peedle MBE made to a Seaford Silver Band Concert earlier in the year, where the School's choir and band gave a recital which received a standing ovation.
Bob Peedle said: "This made a great impression on us, and as the Branch is always looking to help local efforts, we asked the school to nominate a gift. They needed Agogo Bells, so it has been a privilege to give them and to visit a school assembly to present them."
