WHY SHOULD YOU BE BOTHERED?
December 2 2013.
The Seaford Community Partnership is a voluntary body working with local clubs, businesses, councils and other groups who want to make Seaford a better place to live, work and enjoy life.
It is now asking the people of greater-Seaford to help it set its future efforts into priority order, and to add their own thoughts about the town's future.
This is being done with a questionnaire entitled "Why Should You Be Bothered?" This has gone in Seaford Scene, on local websites and on line as a surveymonkey questionnaire.
Responses, to be in by Christmas Eve, can be left at Seaford Morrisons, or the Tourist Information Centre. The website for online responses is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KMXGN9G
Questions range over health, transport, seafront improvements, sports facilities, social and cultural benefits, and town centre improvements. The mystery topic is the one respondents to the questions wish to add themselves.
What has the Partnership achieved for Seaford to date? It has designed and part-funded the Seafront Exercise Path and Town Heritage Trail. Both of their leaflets can be picked up from the Tourist Centre in Church Street.
It set up the Town's Youth Forum, and their biggest achievement has been to raise the funds for building the Green Gym on the Salts.
The Partnership's Seafront Exhibition last year attracted 800 visitors to the Crypt. Its feedback is informing Council and voluntary plans for Seaford's unique promenade and beach.
It also designed and set up the beach garden on the seafront near West View.
In the new year, as a result of the questionnaire's findings, the Partnership will re-launch its efforts for the town. It also intends to involve many more of the 180+ clubs and organisations it has identified in Seaford!
