ONE of the 50 official beacons to be lit across East Sussex to celebrate the Jubilee belonged to Seaford Bonfire Society.

The society was proud to have built the bonfire to mark the occasion on Seaford Head, which was lit after a laser show at the Martello Fields.

At the end a shaft of green laser light struck the beacon, which burst into flames.

Boys and belles from the bonfire society ran a stall selling cakes and pirate themed items and also joined in the Jubilee parade, their first procession of the year.

As there has been an increased interest in joining the society, there will be an open day at the headquarters, the White Lion Pub, Claremont Road, Seaford from 11am to 4pm on Sunday June 17.

There will be advice on costume making and clothes and accessories for sale.

Society chairman, Steve Russell said: “It is great fun to be part of the society so why not come along to our open day and learn how you can dress up, and march in processions in Seaford and all over Sussex?”
