Congratulations to all the winners of this year's Seaton in Bloom competition and thank you to all the residents and allotment holders who entered. The judging was incredibly difficult as the standard was so high, as was the level of hard work and dedication put into the preparation of each entry.

Below are a few photos of the winners and their gardens, courtyards and allotment plots.

Seaton Town Council

WHAT HAS THE COUNCIL BEEN DOING THIS SUMMER? Here's just a few of our activities:

Partnership Working:
• Summer First Aid Station – working in partnership with Re:Store (grant of £1,350), and the work of the Deputy Clerk, this popular and successful project has been funded and has now concluded for 2021 with a number of people being treated, thereby relieving pressure on Southwestern Ambulance.
• Art Trail – in partnership with talented local artists and the project management skills of Andrew Gwyn Davies - who has voluntarily given up his time to lead this initiative - the Council has established the second phase of the Seaton Art Trail, which is well on the way to completion with 4 new boards being installed next week and original installations also underway.
• Water Bottle Refill Stations – working in partnership with EDDC (installation by EDDC contractors thereby saving the Council approximately £1,000) and SW Water (grants of £1,600), the Council has installing two water bottle refill stations - seafront and Seafield Gardens.
• Weeding and tidying - councillors have been busy, with the help of volunteers, weeding Thury Harcourt and other areas or the town.
• Mayoral regalia – working in partnership with Beer Men’s Shed, a new case has been made to protect the town’s mayoral regalia
• Labyrinth board – again, in partnership with Beer Men’s Shed, the finger labyrinth has been remade and the stand repaired.
• Seaton in Bloom - thanks to the input of local residents and businesses and the hard work of the Admin & Community Events Officer, the Seaton in Bloom competition was relaunched in 2021 and there will be a presentation for the winners on 9 September.
• Planter sponsorship – all available planters were sponsored by local businesses, thereby raising £1,088 towards future projects.
• Sensory Garden – in partnership with EDDC, a site has been agreed for the garden project and site visits undertaken. Officers are working in conjunction with EDDC and Re:Store to identify funding sources and assistance in kind for this project.
• Welcome Back Funding - work is being done with EDDC officers to secure up to £10,000 funding for new benches, bunting, planters and items for the sensory garden
Other projects:
• Seaton Film – the premiere of this fabulous promotional film -commissioned by the Council and produced by Seaton's own talented filmmaker, George Merritt of Metrix Productions - will be coming to a cinema near you soon!
• Tourist Information Centre – this has been successfully transferred from Seaton Jurassic and is being run by the Council’s officers from Marshlands
• Marketing & media engagement – due to the efforts of the Deputy Clerk, assisted by Cllr Steven, the Council has received positive coverage of its projects, such as the first aid station and collaborations with the Beer Men’s Shed, in both print and other media including:
o Spotlight
o Radio Devon
o Midweek Herald
o ‘East Devon Resident’ Magazine
• Allotments – a new shed for plant and equipment swaps has been installed at the allotments, along with the new picnic benches, by the Town Maintenance Officer with the help of Streetscene
• Community consultation – this has now been undertaken and the results are being collated.
Qualifications:
• CiLCA - the Town Clerk's submission of this professional qualification has been completed and adjudged exemplary, enabling Seaton to achieve the general power of competence at the next elections and do more good things for the town
• RoSPA - the Town Maintenance Officer has attended the 3-yearly RoSPA refresher training and taken the associated examination, to ensure the ongoing safety of the Council’s play parks.

It’s been a busy summer! Thank you to all partners and volunteers that are helping Seaton Town Council make these things happen. #teamworking #eddc #partnershipworking #teamseaton #communitygroups #volunteers

BRING A BOTTLE! PLEASE SHARE.
Installed today - at Seafield Gardens and West Walk - two water bottle refill stations. Another great example of Seaton Town Council working in partnership with other stakeholders for the benefit of the town and the environment generally. Funded by STC with a generous contribution from SW Water and installation and ongoing maintenance courtesy of EDDC. Please make use of them and reduce single use plastics at the same time. Thank you Cllr Marcus Hartnell for initiating this project. #partnershipworking #teamseaton #eddc #swwater #stc #seaton #plasticfree #workingtogether

Art work on the ugly sorting office would look amazing!

These works will be a great addition to the Seaton art trail. 🙂

Looking forward to seeing them 😃
