Seaford Town Council wishes to thank East Sussex Fire and Rescue for their prompt and professional response to the small gorse fire at the Seaford Head Golf Course last night. This meant that the fire was contained to a small area of bank, and public safety was ensured at all times.

The fire is out and the course remains open as usual and golf is completely unaffected.

We also want to remind the public to be extra careful at the moment, with the ground being so dry. As we saw last night, fires can start very easily at the moment. We all need to make sure that we don't do anything that could increase the risk of fires happening e.g. cigarette ends, barbecues, glass or any other materials that risk a fire starting.

Many thanks, STC
