The Mayor of Seaford, Cllr Rodney Reed is delighted to invite you join him in watching his unique ’virtual Civic Service’.

It is usual practice for Seaford Town Council to host an annual Civic Service to welcome the new Mayor to their term in office. As we are still in these unprecedented times, disappointinglya physical event has not been possible. However, thanks to the wonders of technology, Seaford Town Council is happy to announce that a unique and innovative ‘Virtual Civic Service’ has been created so that the occasion can still be celebrated and viewed online.

A whole host of video clips have been received and collated,and the Virtual Civic Service will be available on Seaford Town Council’s and Seaford Baptist Church’s YouTube Channel.(links below) from Saturday 4th July 12.00 noon.

Quote from the Mayor – ‘I experienced my first weeks of being a ‘virtual Mayor’as isolated ones. I realise however that others have had more difficulties to endure for example by being in quarantine or self-isolation. 

I have seen some of these difficulties in doorstep contacts with residents through the ‘Seaford Volunteer Emergency Team’ and the ‘Seahaven StoreHouse Foodbank’. 

I have been impressed by the way many local charities and voluntary groups have persevered and have found new ways to continue serving the town during the pandemic. Our Civic Service is an opportunity to celebrate the community spirit in our town,which as usual and during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been admirable.
