New mayor of Seaford Mark Brown announced he wanted to set up an annual award for service to Seaford in memory of Don Mabey, who died last year.
Don was made a freeman of Seaford for his sterling work in the community.
It will be called the Don Mabey award.
Residents will be asked to nominate a person who they think has worked hard for the town.
The mayor announced the scheme at the town council meeting Monday January 27.
