Seaford Town Council supports Lewes District Council’s

‘Shop Independent’ scheme to encourage shoppers to buy local, including offering free parking in the town on certain days in the lead up to Christmas

 

SEAFORD,7th NOVEMBER 2022 - Seaford Town Council is working with Lewes District Council to encourage shoppers to use their local high street shops in the lead up to Christmas.

An exciting reward scheme is being run, whereby shoppers using certain local traders will be entered into a prize draw. Shoppers can collect a stamp card from Seaford Tourist Information Office, together with a list of participating traders, and can then start collecting stamps as they use local shops.

Shopping locally supports local businesses as well as reducing carbon footprints. Seaford town centre is blessed with a variety of independent shops with unique, locally made items, making it the perfect place to indulge in some Christmas shopping locally and support those that keep the town centre thriving.

Seaford Town Council encourages travel to the town centre by foot, cycle or public transport where possible. For those shopping trips that do require a car, Lewes District Council has generously arranged for free parking in four of its Seaford car parks on the following dates:  Saturday 26th November, Saturday 3rd December and Saturday 10th December. The Seaford car parks included are located in Saxon Lane, Sutton Road, Richmond Road and West Street.

Town Clerk, Adam Chugg says, “We are very lucky to have so many brilliant independent shops in our town. It’s great for our residents to have these on our doorstep, giving us all the chance to support our local traders.’

The Shop Independent Scheme and offer of free parking is perfectly timed to also support the town’s upcoming annual ‘Christmas Magic’ event on Saturday, 3rd December.

Please note, free parking only applies to the car parks mentioned (Saxon Lane, Sutton Road, Richmond Road and West Street), all other parking restrictions remain unchanged. More information on the campaign with a list of traders taking part can be found here:  (https://www.visitlewes.co.uk/
