SEATON: Tributes paid after town pulls together
Thursday, 27 February 2014
TRIBUTES have been paid to all those who pulled together to clear up the town after the recent storms and help those who were hit by flooding in Seaton.
Mayor of Seaton, Councillor Gaynor Sedgwick, told the town council at their February meeting that it was “quite a storm” and it was sad to see damage to the seafront.
“Our thoughts are with those people who continue to suffer damage and flooding,” she said.
Councillor Sedgwick praised council staff and councillors for their work in dealing with the emergency and the council’s snow warden, Julian Langworthy, was singled out for special praise.
Resident John Barrington-Rowell, a regular attender at council meetings, used the public forum to add his praise, describing the combined effort as “absolutely fantastic”.
Beat manager PC Steve Speariett said the storms were the most serious he had witnessed, saying it was good to see the community coming together.
He also praised Mr Langworthy for his assistance.
