Day of action to deal with issues at Seaford Beach

EMERGENCY services will be at Seaford Beach on Sunday August 26 for a day of action to deal with locally identified issues at the beach.

Billed as a Quality Street event, it is being staged by various organisations, such as local councils, police and the fire service, as well as Seaford Lifeguards.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service will be giving information about fire safety, with an emphasis on beach barbecues and safe disposal of equipment.

Seaford Lifeguards will put on displays to highlight the excellent work they do and to increase public safety on the beach through education.

Information will be available about the restrictions in specific areas along Seaford Beach which apply to dogs.

People will be able to speak with local animal wardens to get advice about where and when there are restrictions and the penalties in place for these and other offences.

And the Environment Agency will attend the event for a beach clean up during the day.

Sussex Police and Newhaven Town councillors will be available throughout the day to offer advice, answer questions and provide information.

This Quality Street event is designed to raise awareness of beach safety issues and to bring the community together.

It will take place on the promenade between West View Kiosk and the Salts Recreational Ground, from 11am to 4pm.
