Various dignitaries were in attendance, including the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Mayors from neighbouring towns, emergency service officials and Council chairmen. Friends, family members and associates of the Mayor also attended the service as well as members of the public.
Honorary Freeman Laurie Holland was requested to give a reading at the service. Reverend Martin encouraged everyone to join together in prayers for the Mayor, for the town of Seaford and its community. Attendees also sang along to some well-selected energetic hymns.
The Mayor’s charities, Seaford Lifeguards and CTLA, gave two introduction presentations, providing information on their services and thanking the Mayor for his support, as well as members from other organisations in attendance.
