Town councillors are appealing for people to keep the Salts Recreation Ground tidy after they spent several hours clearing up overflowing bins.

Cllrs Sarah McStravick and Sylvia Dunn from Seaford Town Council decided to take action after they saw the state the seafront park was in at this busy time of year.

The pair are pleading with visitors to the Salts to take their rubbish home with them if litter bins are overflowing.

Cllr McStravick said: “We have raised this issue at Seaford Town Council who are taking this issue as a matter of concern and who will be liaising with Lewes District Council and contractors to ensure that rubbish is effectively managed and cleared.

“Cllr Dunn and I cleared five bags of rubbish that was strewn across the park.

“Much of the rubbish was cans and takeaway boxes but did include nappies!

“In the meantime if litter bins are full, we ask if you can to take your litter home with you if possible and ask the whole community to keep Seaford Tidy.”
