SEAFORD 10th MARCH 2021. On Tuesday 20th April 2021, the Town Council will facilitate the Annual Town Meeting (also known as the Town Forum). This is a public meeting, not a Council meeting that gives members of the public the chance to ask questions and receive updates on the Town Council activities over the previous year.
Due to the restrictions in place and in support of the Government’s Covid-19 guidance, the Seaford Town Forum will be held virtually this year. The live virtual Town Forum will start at 7pm on Tuesday 20th April, hosted via Zoom by the Mayor of Seaford and the Town Clerk for any members of the public who wish to attend. Further details of the live Town Forum will be issued shortly.
The event usually includes presentations from charities and organisations that have received financial grants from the Town Council; giving an insight in to how the money has been spent and the benefit this has brought to the town. Due to the need to hold this meeting virtually, rather than the presentations being live, these presentations will instead be collated as a video and available on the Town Council YouTube channel and website on Tuesday 20th April.
The video will also include the Mayor of Seaford’s and the Young Mayor’s presentations of the annual Mayor’s Awards, which are given to members of the community or organisations that have worked hard for the benefit of the town or have overcome great barriers. The prestigious Don Mabey Award is also presented; an award first bestowed in 2014 in memory of the late Don Mabey MBE and his services for Seaford. The Don Mabey Award is given to selected residents of the Seaford community for outstanding services to the town.
Nominations for Mayor’s and Young Mayors Awards are still open for consideration. If you would like to nominate someone, please email their details and reason for the nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st March.
Further details regarding registering to attend the virtual Town Forum will be available nearer the time. Anyone is welcome to participate. In the meantime, please keep the date in your diary!
