THANK YOU TO THE MEMEBER OF THE PUBLIC WHO SENT THIS LOVELY MESSAGE SAYING HOW MUCH SHE ENJOYS THE SENSORY GARDEN - an EDDC/STC partnership project

Hello, I just wanted to say how wonderful SeaField Gardens has looked (and still!) during the summer, especially after it's marvellous 'make-over'. Wild flowers, nest/bee boxes, colourful archway, nice bit of landscaping etc., etc. The graffiti artist has made a splendid job too! I was rather disappointed when the exercise structures went, but what is now in place is much better - a lovely restful place to sit. The childrens park too seems very popular and well-used. Has it been a combination of East Devon DC and Seaton Town Council I was wondering? Anyway, who-ever, really is an asset to the town.

This is ridiculously late, and yes I read your reasons why, but it's not good enough. You can't plan everything in the town based on what's happening in Exeter. If I was a local trader, I'd be even more disgusted with you than I already am!

Amrik, have shared the post on our residents Facebook page, the responses are very positive 😀

Is there an actual carnival or just a majorette parade? Thank-you

Amrik, thank you to you and fellow councillors for all the hard work that you do on behalf of the Town. Personally it is good to see Christmas 🎄 events starting in December. Hard to please everyone

Please can you advertise this Saturday for Fayre

Sadly the feed back from myself is if I take my son to the Gateway. When that finishes I don't think he will want to go to the evening event. Sadly I feel alot of young families might have the same problem. Hopefully we will make one or the other.

Seaton Town Council

SEATON TOWN COUNCIL
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS 2022 STATEMENT

Every year Seaton Town Council funds and arranges the installation of the town’s Christmas lights in preparation for the switch-on event to take place on the first weekend of December. This is in contrast to neighbouring towns who rely heavily on the support of voluntary community groups and/or Chambers of Commerce to either organise, fundraise for or offer their time to deliver those towns’ Christmas lights displays.

The Council also supports the Carnival Committee with the various additional activities that accompany the switch-on event, such as the Majorettes procession and Father Christmas, by arranging the pavement licence and a PA system and music on the day. In addition, the Council supports local businesses and traders by producing a publicity flyer to promote the event to attract footfall to the town. A considerable amount of planning and hard work is required to ensure that this annual event runs smoothly, safely and is well supported.

In light of other events taking place in the area this year, particularly the return of the Exeter Christmas Carnival on 26th November after 24 years and the Honiton Christmas Carnival on 3rd December, a decision was made in conjunction with the Carnival Committee, for the Christmas lights switch-on to take place on 10th December this year. Consideration was given to the fact that the Exeter and Honiton carnivals were likely to attract those who would usually take part in the Seaton event and it was felt that the date of 10th December would ensure the availability of the Seaton Majorettes and their supporters.

The installation of the Christmas lights is time-consuming and labour-intensive. Sufficient time has to be allowed for the potential for poor weather conditions leading to delays and the Council is also reliant on the availability of a third-party contractor to assist the Town Maintenance Officer as, without their help, the town lights cannot be installed.

Whilst the Council appreciates that local traders and businesses have organised activities for the 26th November, this being the date being published in the Carnival Committee programme, it is hoped that the local community understands the reasons behind the decision to reschedule the event to the 10th December, a decision which was directly communicated as soon as it was made, to those who the Council felt would be impacted the most, including the Gateway Theatre Company.

The Council is working incredibly hard to ensure that Seaton sparkles in time for the 10th December and if the weather gods are on our side and some lights can be switched on prior to that date, then every effort will be made to do so. However, this cannot be guaranteed.

It was lovely to see so many people at last week's Warm Hub - a rather tense game of whist was had by some whilst some tucked into cuppas and biscuits and had a good old natter 😊

The Warm Hub will be open again on Tuesday 22nd November and Martin from Devon Communities Together will be available with some energy advice.

Have a lovely weekend 😊
