Seaford Town Council held an open evening on 20th September for prospective councillors in the coming by-elections, which are scheduled for 27th October.

The Town Council currently has five casual vacancies and was keen to give individuals considering standing for election the chance to come and meet with current councillors and staff and learn about the Council and the role and responsibilities of being a councillor.

The evening was well attended, with over 20 people coming along to express their interest in the five positions and take the opportunity to better their understanding of the Town Council direct with those in the know.

The Town Clerk gave a presentation to those in attendance (a copy of the slides are available on the Council’s website), which was followed by an encouraging level of questioning and discussions between current councillors and those looking to find out more.
