SEAFORD TOWN FORUM AWARDS TOWN'S FINEST
May 1 2014.
The Seaford Town Forum was held at Seaford Baptist Church on the 29th of April where the local councillors were asked to attend so that the residents of Seaford could have their say and give their opinions on matters affecting Seaford town.
It was only the second year that the Town Forum was held at Seaford Baptist church, so that the council could accommodate organisations that received small grants and were invited to provide a small display and promote their activities over the last year, and for STC to be able to accommodate a larger audience for the presentations and Mayor’s Awards.
Mayor Mark Brown opened the evening by welcoming everyone who had made an effort to attend. Presentations were given by elected members of the organisations that received large grants in 2013; Seaford Lifeguards, Seaford Bonfire Society, Seaford & Newlands Amateur Boxing Club, Seaford Community Partnership and Seaford Citizens Advice Bureau.
Presentations were then given from the Mayors’ chosen charities for 2014; WAVES and Seahaven Storehouse, and the two charities that were chosen by last year’s Mayor, Councillor Anthony White, who gave us some information and background knowledge on what they do behind the scenes of Seaford and the surrounding area.
The Mayor’s awards were given to Jill Allen, Nicky Auster, Ben King, Andy Lock, Vicky Martin, Sgt. Stuart Mullins, Gerri Ori and Lesley Wetlesen for all the work they have done for Seaford Town. A new award created by the Mayor of Seaford and named as The Don Mabey Annual Award after the late Mr Don Mabey MBE, who was a geat asset to Seaford and is dearly missed, was presented to Dave Argent. The Don Mabey Award is given to selected residents of the Seaford community for outstanding services to the town of Seaford.
