About the Annual Town Meeting
Each year the Town Council facilitates an Annual Town Meeting (also known as the Town Forum). This is a public meeting, not a Town Council meeting, and is a chance for members of the public to ask any questions of the Council and receive updates on the Council’s activities over the previous year.
The event also usually includes presentations from charities and organisations that have received financial grants from the Council; giving an insight in to how the money has been spent and the benefit this has brought to the town. The Mayor of Seaford will usually also present 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 of Seaford.
All members of the public are invited to come along. Councillors will be in attendance to answer your queries on matters relating to Seaford in an open question and answer session.
2021 Annual Town Forum
Despite the continuing Covid-19 restrictions being still in place, plans are being made to hold a virtual Annual Town Meeting via Zoom this year on 20th April 2021 at 7pm. It is an opportunity to hear from the new Town Clerk Adam Chugg, on key updates and priorities for the year ahead and a chance for questions to be asked. The Agenda can be found here –Seaford Town Forum 2021 Agenda – which includes Zoom joining instructions.
The Mayor’s and Young Mayor’s Awards and Large Grants presentations will have been pre- recorded and will be available on the Seaford Town Council’s YouTube Channel from 20th April.
2020 Annual Town Forum
Unfortunately, the Seaford Town Forum due to take place in May 2020 was postponed (and later cancelled all together) due to the restrictions in place in support of the Government’s Covid-19 guidance. The Town Council put together a video which shares (virtually) the presentations which would have taken place at the Town Forum.
The video is available via the Town Council’s YouTube channel and other reports/presentations from 2019-20 large grant recipients can also be found below –
