SEATON: Seaton prepares for big clean

Friday, 21 February 2014

Recent storms may have caused a good deal of damage to Seaton’s seafront, walkways and flowerbeds, but members of the town council’s Town Development Team (TDT) will be hitting the beach and streets to take part in the annual Seaton Big Clean.
The big clean will be launched by Seaton’s Town Crier on March 1st to help spur on the many families, businesses and schools groups who are expected to attend.
Everyone is invited to go along and help and the first 40 adults and 30 children will receive a free t-shirt.
The annual TDT clean-up is well supported by local business including Pebbles Café who are donating a free bacon or veggie bap with every beverage purchased by volunteers throughout the clean-up. East Devon District Council are also providing hi-vis vests and clean up gear.
Chris Reed of Frank Property, this year’s lead sponsor, said:?“We are delighted to support the big clean and hope that many people will join us on March 1st. Having the town looking its best is a great way to promote it.”
Major prizes are up for grabs including the Golden Dustbin Award, worth £132, for the team that collects the most rubbish; Most Interesting Piece Of Rubbish prize worth £65; and the Ugliest Piece Of Rubbish prize worth £62.
Prizes have been donated by Bay Tree House B&B, Seaton Tramway, The Gateway, Seaton Visitor Centre Trust, local author Bruce Harris, Green Sauce (Tim Maddams) and Seaton & District Chamber of Commerce.
Areas scheduled to be tidied include the Beach, West Walk, Fisherman’s Gap, Promenade Area, Fore Street, Queen Street, Cross Street and Harbour Road. There will also be weeding of flowerbeds.
Volunteers are asked to meet at 10.30am at Pebbles Café.
Those attending should wear sturdy shoes and bring gardening or workman’s gloves, children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.
The big clean is just one part of a series of activities planned for Seaton this year as part of the Town Development Team’s mission to invigorate Seaton
