SEAFORD'S SUSSEX DAY CELEBRATION
June 20 2014.
Seaford Town Council held its annual Sussex Day Celebration at the lifeguard station by Martello Tower on Seaford seafront last Sunday.
The point of the day is to celebrate and show appreciation for the rich heritage and culture of Sussex. The idea originally came from a resident of Worthing who suggested the idea to a local politician in 2006. The local politician was that impressed with the suggestion that the first Sussex Day was celebrated in 2007.
Many were in attendance to enjoy the event which began with a proclamation written specifically for Seaford from Town Crier Peter White, as the East Sussex flag was raised high by the Mayor of Seaford, Cllr. Mark Brown. Attendees then sang an enthusiastic rendition of Sussex by the Sea.
The event was overseen by the Seaford Lifeguards who also graciously provided refreshments.
